Closest first | Highest first | Lowest first

It's about seven times as tall as The Eiffel Tower
In other words, 7,359 feet is 6.920 times the height of The Eiffel Tower, and the height of The Eiffel Tower is 0.1450 times that amount.
(a.k.a. La Tour Eiffel) (Paris, France) (to flagpole peak)
The Eiffel Tower stands 1,060 feet tall, including its flagpole. The Tower is the largest structure in Paris as most other buildings are governed by a zoning restriction limiting them to a height of 121 feet or less.
It's about seven-and-a-half times as long as The QE2
In other words, 7,359 feet is 7.630 times the length of The QE2, and the length of The QE2 is 0.1310 times that amount.
(a.k.a. RMS Queen Elizabeth 2)
The QE2 has a total length of 965 feet. During its voyaging lifetime from 1969 through 2008, it travelled more than 31,500,000,000 feet, the furthest cumulative distance by any ship in modern history.
It's about ten times as tall as The Golden Gate Bridge
In other words, 7,359 feet is 9.880 times the height of The Golden Gate Bridge, and the height of The Golden Gate Bridge is 0.1010 times that amount.
(San Francisco, California and Marin County, California) (height above water)
The height of each tower of Golden Gate Bridge is 745 feet above the surface of the San Francisco Bay. One of the key designers of the bridge, Charles Ellis, had no engineering degree when he began working on the project, but would later go on to write what became a standard textbook on structural engineering, and would ultimately be forced to complete his calculations on the bridge by working without pay for five months.
It's about one-tenth as tall as Olympus Mons
In other words, the height of Olympus Mons is 12 times 7,359 feet.
(a.k.a. Mount Olympus) (Mars)
The tallest mountain in the solar system, Olympus Mons rises to approximately 89,000 feet. The mountain has been known to astronomers since the nineteenth century because it is tall enough to rise above Mars' frequent dust storms.
It's about twelve times as tall as The Space Needle
In other words, 7,359 feet is 12.20 times the height of The Space Needle, and the height of The Space Needle is 0.082 times that amount.
(Seattle, Washington) (to aircraft warning beacon at peak)
Built for a 1962 World's Fair, the Space Needle stands 604 feet tall. With a track-and-wheel design inspired by railroad mechanics and a precisely-configured balance, the restaurant near the top of the space needle requires just a 1.5 hp motor to rotate at speeds of about 0.053 kph (0.033 mph).
It's about thirteen times as tall as St. Paul's Cathedral

St. Paul's Cathedral measures 571 feet to its peak. The southwest tower of the Cathedral contains the bell known as "Great Paul," which is the largest bell in Great Britain at 15,000 kg (16.5 tons), outweighing the more iconic Big Ben bell by about 3,000 kg (3 tons).
It's about thirteen-and-a-half times as tall as The Washington Monument
In other words, 7,359 feet is 13.250 times the height of The Washington Monument, and the height of The Washington Monument is 0.075472 times that amount.
(Washington, D.C.)
The Washington Monument measures 555.410 feet tall, with some discrepancy due to the fact that the Monument's base is slightly below the surrounding ground. Interrupted in its construction by the American Civil War, it was almost 36 years between groundbreaking and the completion of construction.
