Without a doubt: It's the Statue of Liberty. Nothing is quite so prominent.

Hollywood Sign or Statue of Liberty.

Although isolated, Mount Rushmore should be included as well.

Statue Of Liberty by a long shot.

Followed by The US Capitol and The Golden Gate Bridge.

Not that I think it should win, but I think Mount Rushmore needs to be on the list as one of the top landmarks- I would say it should be in the top 3 or 4.

My vote for the top landmark though is the Statue of Liberty.

If we are talking recognition on a Global scale then no Mt. Rushmore isn't in the same league as the Statue Of Liberty, Golden Gate Bridge, Hollywood sign or the US Capital.
