The Beauty of The Bay Lights Shine for You

The Bay Bridge, connecting Oakland and San Francisco, has endured since 1936 as the Bay Area’s plain older sister: strong, hard working and taken for granted, while the Golden Gate is celebrated as an orange beauty in the mist — the subject of songs, photographs and hailed as the monument of reaching the West Coast.
