Most famous of the three(Supertalls for their time)

I though I'd open a fun thread,out of these three world famous structures,from first to last which is more world known. Eiffel Tower,Empire State Building ,Statue of Liberty. Sure we have taller skyscrapers built since then,but time is the side of these three.. As a kid I remember everything being compared to the ESB,when there is a size comparison (no I'm not partial lol)..But these three structures are very popular.

Ya statue of liberty isn't a supertall. As for the other two, it depends on where you were. Even now, many buildings in Europe are compared to the Eiffel tower when it comes to height and is extremely famous. In the US however its all about the ESB. So really their famousness was more and still is more of a regional thing.

Skyscraperwise, The Empire State is the most famous. In Asia, be can be debated between The BoC (HK) and Petronas (KL)

These were nothing special, they were just towers that knew how to soar.
