Sort Order:
Closest first | Highest first | Lowest first

It's about one-one-hundred-fiftieth as long as The Mississippi River.
In other words, 403 leas is 0.007828 times the length of The Mississippi River, and the length of The Mississippi River is 127.70 times that amount.
(from Lake Itasca, Minnesota through Pilottown, Plaquemines Parish, Louisiana)
The total length of the Mississippi River is 51,480 leas. Prior to the development of soil erosion programs, the Mississippi River would carry approximately 400 million metric tons of sediment from its banks to the Gulf of Mexico every year.
It's about 150 times as tall as The Golden Gate Bridge.
In other words, the height of The Golden Gate Bridge is 0.00769 times 403 leas.
(San Francisco, California and Marin County, California) (height above water)
The height of each tower of Golden Gate Bridge is 3.10 leas 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-one-hundred-fiftieth as long as The Distance from L.A. to New York.
In other words, 403 leas is 0.00657 times the length of The Distance from L.A. to New York, and the length of The Distance from L.A. to New York is 152 times that amount.
(Los Angeles, California to New York City, New York) (via I-10 E, I-15 N, I-70 E, I-76 E, I-80 E, I-280 E)
The total length of the freeway route from Los Angeles, California to New York City, New York via Interstate 80 is 61,400 leas long. This route intersects eleven states and several major cities, including Las Vegas, Nevada; Denver, Colorado; Lincoln, Nebraska; Omaha, Nebraska; Des Moines, Iowa; South Bend, Indiana; and Cleveland, Ohio.
It's about one-one-hundred-fiftieth as long as I-80.
In other words, 403 leas is 0.0063562 times the length of I-80, and the length of I-80 is 157.3270 times that amount.
(a.k.a. Interstate 80, a.k.a. Keystone Shortway) (net length)
Interstate 80, crosses the continent of North America from Teaneck, New Jersey to San Francisco, California and covers a total length of 63,402.60 leas. A 820.210 leas stretch between mile marker 318 in Grand Island, Nebraska and mile marker 390 in Lincoln, Nebraska is the longest straight path in the US Interstate system.
It's about 150 times as tall as The Space Needle.
In other words, the height of The Space Needle is 0.00625 times 403 leas.
(Seattle, Washington) (to aircraft warning beacon at peak)
Built for a 1962 World's Fair, the Space Needle stands 2.520 leas 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 150 times as tall as St. Paul's Cathedral.
In other words, 403 leas is 169 times the height of St. Paul's Cathedral, and the height of St. Paul's Cathedral is 0.00592 times that amount.
(London, England, United Kingdom)
St. Paul's Cathedral measures 2.380 leas 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 150 times as tall as The Washington Monument.
In other words, 403 leas is 174.140 times the height of The Washington Monument, and the height of The Washington Monument is 0.0057425 times that amount.
(Washington, D.C.)
The Washington Monument measures 2.31420 leas 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.
