Did you know that the Golden Gate Bridge is designed to sway 27 feet in an earthquake? Or that famous Lombard Street, the Crookedest Street in the World actually isn t even the crookedest street in San Francisco? Written by the same author who brought us Play Ball and other best-selling trivia books, this quirky compendium of fun facts and stories about The City is cut in the shape of the Golden Gate Bridge. From BART s transbay tube that sits 130 feet below the surface of the San Francisco Bay to the top of the 853-foot-tall Transamerica Pyramid, all of San Francisco s best-kept mysteries are revealed and popular but inaccurate myths are exploded. A distinctive souvenir for visitors, a great impulse buy for locals, and a necessary dispute settler for San Francisco fanatics everywhere, this book takes a fresh approach to the City That Knows How, but prefers not to.
