This wasn’t the most dramatic or intense of rides, but the other day I went to check out the Westinghouse Atom Smasher, a long-abandoned nuclear accelerator built in the 1930s. I got to see a part of the city that I haven’t seen before, which was kind of nice. The ride wasn’t too intense, but there is a surprisingly steep hill heading into the little neighborhood housing the Atom Smasher.
