Bethlehem Steel Works, Pennsylvania


For many decades, Bethlehem Steel Co. was the second-largest US steelmaker.  Its massive original plant on the Lehigh River just east of Allentown, Pennsylvania employed over 35,000 during World War II, when its output of steel plate was critical to the Allied war effort.  Its products also helped to create some of America's most well-known infrastructure, such as the Golden Gate Bridge. In this drone video by Chris Bonnanno, you'll get a bird's eye view of the plant, which ceased operations in 1995.
