Quick, what would you rather take a picture of on a trip to New York: the Statue of Liberty or the Apple store? Turns out most people would choose the Apple store—at least if we’re talking about the one on Fifth Avenue with a nifty-looking cube atop it. Cornell students analyzed 35 million Flickr images to determine that cube is New York’s fifth most photographed landmark, and the 28th most photographed worldwide. The top seven worldwide:

  2. Trafalgar Square
  3. Tate Modern
  4. Big Ben
  5. Notre Dame
  6. London Eye
  7. Empire State Building
