Re-lay Bahnhofstrasse with a 1 in 4 gradient and put a big iron bridge over the lake. That oughta do it.

Mayor Elmar Ledergerber?

The SF Weekly might want to check their sources a little better.

The new "mayor" is already a bit more San Fran than the old one.

I vote for cable cars on Bahnhofstrasse ... those operators are sure a lot more fun than their VBZ counterparts.

Chinatown? Now there's some good & cheap food memories right there ... better than the generic Swiss-Asian bland blend cuisine I ate for lunch and paid 25 Swissies for.l



No Tsing-Tao beer either.

The Zürisee could do with a Golden Gate Bridge and maybe a federal prison for UBS executives on Ufenau.
