The Eiffel Tower:
The Eiffel Tower is more than a famous landmark for Paris. It was built in 1889 by engineer, Gustave Eiffel. There was much protest against such a structure, but luckily for France and the rest of the world the structure was completed. The tower was built to last 20 years. It initially had a height of 312 meters and was the highest building in the world until the Chrysler Building of New York hit 319 meters in 1929. Gustave Eiffel built the tower with plans for meteorological and astronomical observations, experimentation in physics, a strategic observation post, a communications base for signaling, and a beacon for electric light and wind studies. On March 31, 1889, Gustave climbed the 1710 steps of the tower to place the French flag at its peak. THe tower sways slighting in the wind and will expand with the heat of the sun. The Eiffel Tower's foundations lie 15 meters underground. The current height is 324 meters.

The Statue of Liberty stands in the entrance of New York Harbor. She was a gift from France in recognition of the friendship established between the United States and France during the American Revolution.
