Evidently a monument preservation org is staging a poll for the “new 7 wonders of the world.” They’ve narrowed it down to 21, and you can vote online for your favorite list.

Though I’m old-fashioned, still sorry that I’ll never know what the hanging gardens of Bavel really looked like.
In any case, the 21 finalists for the New Seven Wonders of the World, alphabetically:
1 Acropolis, Athens, Greece
