Hollywood is a neighborhood or district of the City of Los Angeles. Hollywood is NOT an independent city, therefore Hollywood should not be accepted. Crimes in Hollywood are responded to by the Los Angeles Police Dept., not the Hollywood Police Dept. (does not exist), and definitely not the LA County Sheriff's Dept.

Not the best example, though, because having (or not having) a police department isn't a certain indicator of an independent city. Note that the adjacent West Hollywood, IS an independent incorporated city - but has agreements with LA county for some services, such as police and fire protection.

Is the Alamo really a landmark? And the Gateway Arch? I get that there is more than one US city on this quiz, and there should be, because some of these landmarks are known all over the world and relevant to World History, but I'm not sure the Alamo and the Gateway Arch really qualify.

See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gateway_Arch. The arch is a memorial dedicated to all those who made possible the westward expansion of the United States from the Mississippi River to the Pacific. I've ridden to the top of it. It is a beautiful work and is the tallest arch in the world.

A landmark doesn't necessarily have to be relevant to world history in order to qualify as landmarks. There are many local landmarks in cities all around the world. Landmarks don't need to be "known all over the world" in order to still be landmarks. The Gateway Arch and The Alamo I think absolutely qualify as landmarks and both have a lot of historical relevance, at least in the U.S. Plus, the U.S is part of the world, so U.S. history is also a part of world history.

The Gateway Arch is an important landmark. It symbolizes the western frontier and westward expansion of the US. The Space Needle was built for a World's Fair that no one remembers anymore. Also the food is terrible. I've been to both and I think the Gateway Arch is much more interesting than the Space Needle.

The Arch is also higher. The observation deck is 630 feet tall while the top deck of the Space Needle is only 520 ft.

Steve, did I? If so, it was probably warranted. I don't sling around undeserved insults. And I'll happily admit to my ignorance of Harbour Bridge(s). Actually I already did that. I and the other 95+% of the world who has never heard of these structures will just have to live with your judgment of us. Except now I have heard of it.

I only knew the Harbour Bridge because my daughter studied abroad in Oz and phoned me to tell me she was sitting under the Harbour Bridge watching the fireworks during the 2000 Olympics. She jokingly asked if I could see her waving at us.

I've never heard of Harbour Bridge, but I suspect there are probably a few (just like the first Table Mountain that popped into my head was a park in the middle of nowhere Saskatchewan). That being said, the spelling helped narrow it down to only a few cities.

This quiz is SOOO America-centric. It's more than 9 answers. You got London, Ohio (Toronto is also in Ohio.) Athens and Rome are both in Georgia. Jerusalem is in New York state and Agra is in Kansas. Berlin is in the nicer part of New Hamphire and Moscow is in an even nicer part of Idaho. And you can visit Paris in about 20 different states. America!!
