旧金山金门大桥完工且对行人开放了

当你想到旧金山时,你的脑海中会浮现什么?是不是被称做金门大桥的这座壮大又美丽,长达4200英尺的橘色钢铁吊桥?这座有名的桥梁在1937527日完工且正式对行人开放?隔天,法兰克林.罗斯福在白宫按下启动钮,金门大桥正式开放让汽车通行。金门大桥之所以特别,其实有几个原因。在1964年之前,金门大桥都还是全世界最长的吊桥。 (现在世界最长的吊桥是横跨本州与四国之间的明石海峡桥,最宽之处约有6500英尺。) 你知道这座桥梁为什么取名为金门大桥吗?


What sights do you think of when you picture the city of San Francisco? How about the massive and lovely 4,200-foot orange-painted steel suspension bridge known as the Golden Gate Bridge? The famous bridge was completed and opened to pedestrian traffic on May 27, 1937. The next day, with a push of a telegraph button in the White House, President Franklin Roosevelt opened the bridge to cars, too. The Golden Gate is special for a number of reasons. Until 1964, it was the longest suspension bridge in the world. (Today, the Akashi-Kaikyo Bridge in Japan boasts the longest span at over 6,500 feet.) Do you know how it got its name?
