SF's Golden Gateway & NY's Tallest Five and Dime

Brian Unger takes locals on an adventure to two vastly different but equally-awe inspiring symbols of American ingenuity. First, Brian travels back to San Francisco in the midst of the Great Depression. This ultra modern city transforms before our eyes to a time when the famous Golden Gate Bridge was merely a dream of Chief engineer Joseph Strauss. Brian and his cast get an exclusive behind the scenes look at the bridge to see what went into its engineering and design - they take a rare look at the bridge's anchorage, then travel by boat underneath it as the bridge transforms before their eyes to its original design and construction.
