How long is 807 paces?

Sort Order:
Closest first | Highest first | Lowest first

It's about one-and-three-fifths times as tall as The Empire State Building.
In other words, 807 paces is 1.614 times the height of The Empire State Building, and the height of The Empire State Building is 0.61958 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.
It's about one-and-nine-tenths times as tall as The Eiffel Tower.
In other words, the height of The Eiffel Tower is 0.526 times 807 paces.
(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 two times as long as The QE2.
In other words, 807 paces is 2.09 times the length of The QE2, and the length of The QE2 is 0.478 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 two-and-a-half times as tall as The Golden Gate Bridge.
In other words, 807 paces is 2.71 times the height of The Golden Gate Bridge, and the height of The Golden Gate Bridge is 0.369 times that amount.
(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 one-third as long as The Preakness Stakes.
In other words, 807 paces is 0.3217703 times the length of The Preakness Stakes, and the length of The Preakness Stakes is 3.107807 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 2,508 paces. 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-tenths as long as The Kentucky Derby.
In other words, 807 paces is 0.305682 times the length of The Kentucky Derby, and the length of The Kentucky Derby is 3.27137 times that amount.
(Churchill Downs, Louisville, Kentucky) (total race length)
The total race length of the Kentucky Derby run at Churchill Downs is 2,640 paces. First run in 1864, the Kentucky Derby is one of the oldest continuously-running sporting events in America, almost two years older than the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show
It's about three-and-a-half times as tall as The Space Needle.
In other words, 807 paces is 3.34 times the height of The Space Needle, and the height of The Space Needle is 0.299 times that amount.
(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).
