There are some big things around Washington DC. The at 555 feet the Washington Monument is the tallest thing around, in fact, if the condo association would cut down all of the trees, I could see it from my living room about 8 miles away. The US Capital Building is about 288 feet tall, without the scaffolding that it is currently wrapped in.
The statues of dead presidents tend to be large, Lincoln and Jefferson are both big, Rosevelt - featured a couple of days ago, is only about 1.5 times normal size. Just north of the Mall there is a jumbo Einstein. Above is George Washington at about 30 feet tall, inside the George Washington Masonic Memorial in Alexandria.
