Art deco preserved

We admired the iconic well preserved tower from the street. We went in and admired the foyer but were told that we could not go to the top - then I read Cinesanky's review!

This is a beautiful building from the outside. Because it is a working office tower, you are not allowed up. However the mural work in the main rotunda is worth a stop. It shows the hard working history of NYC. Remember to look up at the ceiling.

it's a pretty cool building and for me it was an opportunity to see something that i seen on TV and in Movies and so on so many times so it was nice but i can't say that you miss that much if you don't go there.

It is located in the east side of Manhattan between 42nd and Lex. It is one of the landmarks of NYC. If you want to visit this building it is free of cost. But there are lot of other interesting things to do in NyC as well. so you can easily give this a miss.

When you walk into the lobby of the Crystler Building you are blown away by the ornate panelling, ceilings, and marble all veined and perfect! All the lifts are laid out in individual wood paneling design. It is an absolutely beautiful building; my favourite.When you look upwards, and see all the chrome gListening away in the sunshine, it's amazing!

This is in my opinion the most beautiful building in all of NYC. I personally loved the way it looked last week with the sunset behind it from our vintage point. The architectural design is very unique and very detailed oriented. It was pretty cool to be able to view it from Queens as well as it stands tall in... More

I love the design of the building! The spire and gargoyles really makes the building unique and just beautiful! Inside the lobby, you would find a ceiling mural above you which is gorgeous and huge(100ft!!)

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
