Especially bridges that have a history of being the bridge that is the new and improved bridge because the first one fell into the water! Never mind that they built this one better. Never mind that the other one fell during a storm. And never mind that it happened in 1940. It fell and they had to make a new one.
The two towers of the current Tacoma Narrows Bridge rise 467 feet above the piers. How tall is that? By comparison, the Seattle Space Needle is 138 feet taller, measuring 605 feet high. The Statue of Liberty is only 305 feet high, or 162 feet shorter than the Bridge's towers.
You could line up nearly 10 Seattle Space Needles end-to-end and match the length of the Narrows Bridge today. Or, lay down New York's great Empire State Building 4 times and you'd be really close.
