Wind Harp

South San Francisco's version of the Coit Tower and the Wave Organ rolled into one. Perched on top of a hill with awesome and pretty views.

[Albert Nessia, 01/11/2013]

Lucia and Aristides Demetrios built this wind harp in 1967. Wind harps are not uncommon, but this one stands 94 feet tall and reportedly can make quite a racket when the breeze picks up.
