Every time I’ve gone over the Golden Gate I’ve wanted to see what was up on this high hills just to the northwest. Well today we went up there. Think the view from the viewing platform just off the 101 is good? Heh.
As of 1884, at least. This poster reminded me of a time back in the ’90s when I was standing at the southern end of City Hall Park in New York. Standing in one spot I could see four buildings that were, at the time they went up, the tallest buildings in the world; along with one more that was the tallest in New York.
Take a guess, or see the list after the jump.
