<p> Presented to the United States in 1886 as a gift from France, Lady Liberty is a near-universal symbol of freedom and democracy, standing 152 feet high atop an 89-foot pedestal on Liberty Island. You can get a sense of the thrill millions of immigrants must have experienced as you approach it on the ferry from Battery Park and see the statue grow from a vaguely defined figure on the horizon into a towering, stately colossus. <em>Learn more:</em> <a href="http://www.fodors.com/world/north-america/usa/new-york/new-york-city/review-56729.html">Statue of Liberty Review</a> </p>

    You think Hoover Dam is more iconic than the White House, Grand Canyon, or Old Faithful?  I think The Space Needle in Seattle or Superdome is even more of a landmark than the Hoover Dam.  Times Square and Empire State building would be high up there too.  Hollywood sign in LA.
