Student Street Hack - Take the challenge - How long is Student Street?

In October 1958 Oliver R. Smoot was used to measure the length of the Harvard Bridge. As he lay on the sidewalk of the bridge, markings were made at measures of his height.

  • Hack St 2
  • Hack St 3
  • Hack St 4
  • Hack St 6
  • Hack St 7
  • Hack St 8
  • Hack St 9

The bridge was measured to be 364.4 Smoots (plus or minus one ear) in length. The measurement is still on the bridge today!
