Can you imagine living inside the St. Louis Gateway Arch? Maybe the Washington Monument? The views would be spectacular. How about anywhere in New York; say, the Statue of Liberty? Well, now you can, thanks to this awesome new sketch by Animal New York that shows what Lady Liberty would look like if she were gutted into a 15-floor, 24-unit luxury condo, complete with a $240 million penthouse in her crown. 

And this sparked some debate: what would be the coolest United States landmark to live in? Below, we listed 10 and what the unfortunate cost of living in each would be.

Every morning you get to wake up, look outside, and sing the Miley Cyrus line, "Turn to my right and I see the Hollywood sign..." so this is pretty cool. Jealous.
