How long is 0.3590 miles?

Sort Order:
Closest first | Highest first | Lowest first

It's about three-fifths as tall as Angel Falls.
In other words, 0.3590 miles is 0.590 times the height of Angel Falls, and the height of Angel Falls is 1.690 times that amount.
(a.k.a. Parakupa-vena, a.k.a. Kerepakupai mer&) (Auyantepui, Canaima National Park, Venezuela) (total height)
Angel Falls has a total height 0.6080 miles. Jimmie Angel, the first person to publicize their existence outside Venezuela and the namesake of the falls, damaged his monoplane atop the falls and was forced to abandon it; it remained there until it was removed 33 years later.
It's about one-and-four-fifths times as tall as The Eiffel Tower.
In other words, 0.3590 miles is 1.780 times the height of The Eiffel Tower, and the height of The Eiffel Tower is 0.5620 times that amount.
(a.k.a. La Tour Eiffel) (Paris, France) (to flagpole peak)
The Eiffel Tower stands 0.2010 miles 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 0.023 miles or less.
It's about twice as long as The QE2.
In other words, 0.3590 miles is 1.970 times the length of The QE2, and the length of The QE2 is 0.5080 times that amount.
(a.k.a. RMS Queen Elizabeth 2) The QE2 has a total length of 0.1830 miles. During its voyaging lifetime from 1969 through 2008, it travelled more than 5,970,000 miles, the furthest cumulative distance by any ship in modern history.
It's about two-and-a-half times as tall as The Golden Gate Bridge.
In other words, 0.3590 miles is 2.550 times the height of The Golden Gate Bridge, and the height of The Golden Gate Bridge is 0.3920 times that amount.
(San Francisco, California and Marin County, California) (height above water)
The height of each tower of Golden Gate Bridge is 0.1410 miles 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 three times as tall as The Space Needle.
In other words, 0.3590 miles is 3.140 times the height of The Space Needle, and the height of The Space Needle is 0.3180 times that amount.
(Seattle, Washington) (to aircraft warning beacon at peak)
Built for a 1962 World's Fair, the Space Needle stands 0.1140 miles 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 three-tenths as long as The Preakness Stakes.
In other words, 0.3590 miles is 0.30231580 times the length of The Preakness Stakes, and the length of The Preakness Stakes is 3.3077990 times that amount.
(Pimlico Race Course, Baltimore, Maryland) (total race length)
The total race length of the Preakness Stakes run at the Pimlico Race Course is 1.18750 miles. Dubbed "the race for the Black-eyed Susans" after Maryland's state flower, the winning horse is actually draped with a garland of painted yellow daisies, as Black-eyed Susans do not bloom in time for the late-May race.
It's about three-and-a-half times as tall as St. Paul's Cathedral.
In other words, 0.3590 miles is 3.320 times the height of St. Paul's Cathedral, and the height of St. Paul's Cathedral is 0.3010 times that amount.
(London, England, United Kingdom)
St. Paul's Cathedral measures 0.1080 miles 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).
