Hahvahd Bridge

364.4 smoots and one ear long, the Mass. Ave. (never call it Massachusetts Avenue) bridge spans the Charles River and connects Cambridge to Boston. A "smoot" became part of MIT legend and lexicon in October 1958, when fraternity pledge Oliver Smoot measured the bridge in body lengths (specifically, his). We hope Oliver stopped in the middle to enjoy the view of two great cities in all their glory.
