Bridge of new ill repute: the addition to the San Francisco Bay Bridge. Don't get me started - the SF Chronicle has chronicled the shortcomings. The least shortcoming, compared to apparent poor decision making by the builders re parts substitutions, is that I find it ugly in some photos, not to mention there is no sense to it with regard to the other part of the bridge. Lots of clamour going on in the Bay area about the safety shortcomings. It's a vital bridge.

Morning commuters make their way across the new eastern half of the Bay Bridge in Oakland.
Like many before me, I love the Golden Gate Bridge. One of my "hundred year old" aunt's brothers worked on it when it was being built. But that's not why I love it - I've always found it a joy to ride across, a beauty thrill, and I've crossed it a lot. On the other hand, I was never a commuter to the city. But I also didn't mind the Bay Bridge, despite the traffic jams to get on to it that I used to experience.
I may be wrong about the ugly part, as I haven't driven it - it's a first impression.
