There’s a beautiful church up there, but no real strong evidence that would have necessitated a blocked street.

I’m leaning towards the decision merely being the choice of the developer, who filled this block in late in the development of the area.

Update: The fence has been opened, as of 2018.

Sadly, the crime that caused the staircase to be blocked off in the last couple of decades has started to cause abandonment.
