There is a movement underway, led by the Market Street Railway, a nonprofit, to name a cable car after the late Tony Bennett who died last week at the age of 96.
Known for his song, “I Left My Heart in San Francisco,” Bennett left an imprint on people with the phrase, “To be where little cable cars climb halfway to the stars.”
If it happens, the cable car would join three other cable cars named after notable figures including Friedel Klussmann, the woman who saved the cable car system, a conductor killed while working and San Francisco Giant Willie Mayes.
