On Saturday in New York its called City Streets. They close Park Ave. and you can run the length of it. One of the cool parts is running through the Chrysler Building.

The building is quite impressive but you can't get up. Is close to the New York Public Library, you can see it from there.

I enjoyed seeing the exterior of this building every chance I got. Really unique. I was able to go in the lobby and check out the interior and thought it was really cool as well.

This is a true Classic. Built in the gilded age of the 1930"s by Walter Chrysler, who had scads of money , this place is amazing even for New York. Its sleek design standout proudly fro all others in midtown. I am very fortunate to work across the street and marvel at it daily. When coming into New Yrk by... More
