The Modern Cost of Iconic Landmarks — Infographic

The Modern Cost of Iconic Landmarks

If you had the money, how cool would it be to have your own Statue of Liberty, Leaning Tower of Pisa, or Big Ben?  While you would probably find more practical things to spend your money on, how much would it cost you to build an exact replica of some of the world’s most iconic landmarks yourself?  The folks at Home Advisor took a look at this, taking into account the cost of the materials used to build some of the landmarks, and then adjusting the build time to account for modern equipment, but charging modern labor!  The results might surprise you.  (All costs adjusted for inflation and set at 2015 prices.)  [VIA]
