Lucy the Margate Elephant
Lucy is a building in the shape of an elephant with tin skin and glass eyes! She was constructed in the 1880s for James Rafferty, a real-estate promoter who built her to draw attention to his plans for development near Atlantic City. Lucy cost $25,000 to build, and used 1,000,000 pieces of lumber, 12,000 feet of tin, and 200 kegs of nails. You reach the rooms in the elephant's body by climbing spiral staircases in the rear legs.
