Avenue of the Giants

The tall historical bridge of dull gray concrete that is stretching between Queen Ann and Freemont neighborhoods is known to Seattlites not only as the Aurora Bridge, but also as the Suicide Bridge. During past decade at least 39 people leaped to their deaths into the dark churning waters of the Lake Union - or into the parking lots and rooftops nearby. This is the bridge that witnessed the bus hijacked by a madman go over the rail... While the city is still pondering how to suicide-proof the bridge walkway, the bright yellow boxes with emergency telephones were placed on the bridge in the hopes that the suicide might pick up the phone. In November, another person plunged to death from the bridge.
