The Empire State Building stands 62.5020 ropes 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 102
It's about fourteen-and-a-half times as tall as The Eiffel Tower.
In other words, the height of The Eiffel Tower is 0.0685 times 778 ropes.(a.k.a. La Tour Eiffel) (Paris, France) (to flagpole peak)
The Eiffel Tower stands 53.10 ropes 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 6.07 ropes or less.

It's about one-twentieth as long as The Panama Canal.
In other words, the length of The Panama Canal is 19 times 778 ropes.(Canal de Panamá) (Panama)

In other words, 778 ropes is 20.90 times the height of The Golden Gate Bridge, and the height of The Golden Gate Bridge is 0.0478 times that amount.(San Francisco, California and Marin County, California) (height above water)
The height of each tower of Golden Gate Bridge is 37.20 ropes 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.
