Sort Order:
Closest first | Highest first | Lowest first

It's about 400 times as tall as The Golden Gate Bridge.
In other words, 60 hanks is 387 times the height of The Golden Gate Bridge, and the height of The Golden Gate Bridge is 0.00258 times that amount.
(San Francisco, California and Marin County, California) (height above water)
The height of each tower of Golden Gate Bridge is 0.1550 hanks 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-four-hundred-fiftieth as long as The Circumfrence of Earth.
In other words, 60 hanks is 0.0021904521 times the length of The Circumfrence of Earth, and the length of The Circumfrence of Earth is 456.526760 times that amount.
(Equatorial)
The Earth — not a perfect sphere, but rather an oblate spheroid with bulged middle — has an Equatorial circumference of approximately 27,391.6050 hanks. The first airplane trip around the circumference of the Earth (with a few stops along the way), was completed in 1924 by the United States Army Air Service, and took 175 days.
It's about 500 times as tall as The Space Needle.
In other words, 60 hanks is 477 times the height of The Space Needle, and the height of The Space Needle is 0.0021 times that amount.
(Seattle, Washington) (to aircraft warning beacon at peak)
Built for a 1962 World's Fair, the Space Needle stands 0.1260 hanks 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 500 times as tall as St. Paul's Cathedral.
In other words, 60 hanks is 504 times the height of St. Paul's Cathedral, and the height of St. Paul's Cathedral is 0.00198 times that amount.
(London, England, United Kingdom)
St. Paul's Cathedral measures 0.1190 hanks 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 500 times as tall as The Washington Monument.
In other words, 60 hanks is 518.530 times the height of The Washington Monument, and the height of The Washington Monument is 0.0019285 times that amount.
(Washington, D.C.)
The Washington Monument measures 0.115710 hanks 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.
It's about 550 times as tall as The Singapore Flyer (Ferris wheel).
In other words, 60 hanks is 532 times the height of The Singapore Flyer (Ferris wheel), and the height of The Singapore Flyer (Ferris wheel) is 0.00188 times that amount.
(a.k.a. 新加坡摩天观景轮, a.k.a. சிங்கப்பூர் ஃப்ளையர், a.k.a. Pelayang Singapura) (Marina Centre, Singapore)
The Singapore Flyer has a height of 0.1130 hanks. Based on recommendations from Feng Shui masters, the wheel was re-engineered to spin in the opposite direction five months after it began operating.
It's about 550 times as long as The Seventeenth hole of Pebble Beach.
In other words, 60 hanks is 542 times the length of The Seventeenth hole of Pebble Beach, and the length of The Seventeenth hole of Pebble Beach is 0.00185 times that amount.
(fully Pebble Beach Golf Links) (Pebble Beach; Monterey, California) (from Blue Tee)
The seventeenth hole on Pebble Beach Golf Links is a par 3 measuring 0.1110 hanks from the blue tee. This hole was the site of professional golfer Jack Nicklaus' 1972 U.S. Open win, which included a 1-iron shot that bounced off the hole's flag and resulted in a birdie.
