SAN FRANCISCO
THE GOLDEN GATE BRIDGE
More people commit suicide at the Golden Gate Bridge than at any other site in the world.
The cost to construct a new Golden Gate Bridge
would be approximately $1.2 billion in 2003 dollars.
THE HALFWAY-TO-HELL CLUB
The most conspicuous precaution was the safety net, suspended under
the floor of the Bridge from end to end.  During construction, the net
saved the lives of 19 men who became known as the
"Half-Way-to-Hell Club."
Eleven men died during its construction.
