My 11 Favorite Man-Made American Landmarks (As Photographed By Me)

In the week following the 10th anniversary of 9/11, the commemoration of which featured the unveiling of a new memorial, it seems like a good time to celebrate some of America's great landmarks.

This coming weekend I will be in St. Louis, where I will see one of my 11 Favorite Man-made American Landmarks--I'll have to do natural landmarks, like the Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon, Niagara Falls, the Badlands and more in another post--and recently was in New York City, where I saw and photographed some others.

Before I get to, in the Booth Reviews tradition, my Top 11--all depicted by photos I've taken--I'll cite an additional batch of 11, which may include some of your favorites. In no particular order, these include:

Taos Pueblo - Taos, New Mexico
Massachusetts State House - Boston
Vietnam War Memorial - Washington, DC
Empire State Building - New York
Liberty Bell - Philadelphia
Hoover Dam - Nevada/Arizona Border
Ellis Island - New York
Wrigley Field - Chicago
U.S. Capitol Building - Washington, DC
Saint Louis Cathedral (and entire French Quarter) - New Orleans, LA
Sears Tower (now officially Willis Tower) - Chicago

Now that I've covered the runners-up, here are 11 sights you can't miss, America. And should you wish to learn more about any, Wikipedia can undoubtedly be a good place to start.
