Love the art deco. I suggest you buy your tickets in advance (on line) upon visiting. As you walk through the main lobby, you'll get the old NY vibe. The view is spectacular during the day but I imagine it's breathtaking during sunset.

Even if you go just to the reception and walk around the hall, you get a pretty good impression of the magnificence of this building. You can also get a mythic picture of the building craved on the floor.

This building is so easy to spot day and night it became our beacon whilst in NY. The building is so tall and easy to navigate around the city using this as base point!

I've been in love with the Chrysler Building since I saw the character Deko in a comic by, I think, Mike Allred. To actually see it in the flesh is amazing. My hotel was right next door so I had a great view out of my bedroom window. I didn't have time to see if there's public access to a... More

I like this building and tower a lot. I think Chrysler Building is the most beautiful tower in New York. You can see it from any where you are in NYC

This has always been number 1 or number 2 of my favorite NYC buildings to view during the day or night. During the day it's impressive due to its size and how the light reflects against the upper portion of the building. At night it's especially beautiful by the accent lights and is very impressive from the ground or the... More

This building is beautiful to see in the evening when it is all lit up, stands out a clear mile. The history of the building is a good read too.
