About the Zakim Bridge

ZakimBridge
The Leonard P. Zakim Bunker Hill Memorial Bridge was constructed as part of The Big Dig Project in Boston. The Zakim bridge, as it is known locally, is one of the widest cable-stayed bridges in the world and serves as the northern entrance to and exit from Boston. The Bridge is named after civil rights activist Lenny Zakim and the American colonists who fought the British in the Battle of Bunker Hill. Learn More

"The Commonwealth of Massachusetts is setting a wonderful precedent in naming this bridge after Lenny Zakim and the citizens who fought at the Battle of Bunker Hill, I am proud that we are celebrating the ideals of patriotism, freedom and diversity by dedicating this bridge in their honor. May this remind us all of the difference that one person's decision to stand up to injustice and fight for freedom, respect and diversity can make in the lives of others and in the history of our nation." - Governor Jane Swift at 2002 Bridge dedication.



About the Eiffel Tower

eiffel-tower
An object of discord, desire, and fascination, the Eiffel Tower never fails to impress. The plan to build a tower 300 meters high was conceived, as part of a wager, during preparation for the 1889 World's Fair. The wager was "to study the possibility of erecting an iron tower on the Champ-de-Mars with a square base, 125 meters across and 300 meters tall." Gustave Eiffel, an entrepreneur, and his team of two engineers and an architect, accepted the challenge leading to one of today's most recognizable landmarks in the world. Learn More
