Welcome back! We hope you are enjoying Name that Flyover City!

  1. In what city would you find a 3,000-foot bridge named Bob?
  2. In what city would you find the World’s Largest Rubber Stamp”?
  3. What was the first city in the country to be granted an FM-broadcasting license?

And here are the answers:

  1. Omaha, NE—The Bob Kerrey Pedestrian Bridge is a renowned attraction in Omaha, and most people called him Bob. The bridge, which floats over the Missouri River, links more than 150 miles of hiking and biking trails.
  2. Cleveland, OH—The 35-ton sculpture was designed by Claes Oldenburg and his wife, Coosje van Bruggen to complement the Civil War Soldiers and Sailors Monument. The Free Stamp has an interesting story. Standard Oil commissioned the sculpture to be installed at the front of their Euclid Ave. headquarters. But there was a change in management before its completion and the new boss didn’t care much for a gigantic rubber stamp with the word “FREE” on it. It was put in storage in a warehouse in Whiting, Indiana. In 1991, it was brought out of storage and moved to its current location in Willard Park.
  3. Nashville, TN- On March 1, 1941 W47NV began operations in Nashville, Tennessee, becoming the first modern commercial FM radio station.

Thanks for playing!
