It's about nine-tenths as long as The QE2.
In other words, 357 paces is 0.925 times the length of The QE2, and the length of The QE2 is 1.08 times that amount.
(a.k.a. RMS Queen Elizabeth 2) The QE2 has a total length of 386 paces. During its voyaging lifetime from 1969 through 2008, it travelled more than 12,600,000,000 paces, the furthest cumulative distance by any ship in modern history.
It's about four-fifths as tall as The Eiffel Tower.

(a.k.a. La Tour Eiffel) (Paris, France) (to flagpole peak)
The Eiffel Tower stands 425 paces 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 48.6 paces or less.
It's about one-and-one-fifth times as tall as The Golden Gate Bridge.
In other words, the height of The Golden Gate Bridge is 0.833 times 357 paces.
(San Francisco, California and Marin County, California) (height above water)
The height of each tower of Golden Gate Bridge is 298 paces 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 seven-tenths as tall as The Empire State Building.
In other words, 357 paces is 0.71398 times the height of The Empire State Building, and the height of The Empire State Building is 1.4006 times that amount.
(New York City, New York) (to top of building)
The Empire State Building stands 500.01 paces to its architectural peak. The spire emerging from the top of the building was originally intended to be a mooring mast for blimps whose passengers could disembark onto a landing platform on the 102nd floor of the building.

(Seattle, Washington) (to aircraft warning beacon at peak)
Built for a 1962 World's Fair, the Space Needle stands 241 paces 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 one-and-three-fifths times as tall as The Washington Monument.
In other words, 357 paces is 1.6069 times the height of The Washington Monument, and the height of The Washington Monument is 0.62232 times that amount.
(Washington, D.C.)
The Washington Monument measures 222.17 paces 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 one-and-two-thirds times as tall as The Singapore Flyer (Ferris wheel).

(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 217 paces. Based on recommendations from Feng Shui masters, the wheel was re-engineered to spin in the opposite direction five months after it began operating.
