2. Seagram Building, Manhattan
This building is a scyscraper that can be seen in the midtown of Manhattan, New York. Like all large buildings, this was built of a steel frame and used bronze beams to hold the structure. At the time it was built, it was the most expensive skyscraper since it used tons of bronzes and marbles.
