Well this building was the most prettiest sight to look at. The inside was so incredible, the detail and the art on the walls was so captivating, and stimulating. The top was absolutely amazing, It almost brought a tear to my eye, the feeling was galvanizing. It is most beautiful building at night also, my words can't explain the beauty.... More

Surely no-one can see the Chrysler Building without admiring the beauty and the detail of the design. You need to know nothing about architecture or Art Deco to see the beauty of the building, even my young grandson decided that this was his favourite building in New York, however this significant building was completed in 1930, and is the perfect...

Located almost next to "Grand Central Terminal", this skyscraper has a bit different design then the other skyscrapers in Manhattan. It's a very beautiful building to watch, and by night the whole top is enlightened, as well as most of Manhattan.

THE best looking building in New York by far. Never tire of looking at this Art Deco style skyscraper from any angle and it's architectural style and size make it very photogenic.

Not tallest, but most beautiful. It looks much nicer than any other midtown building. It's not the tallest and there is no public observation deck (as far as I am aware), but it is so nice to look at it.

We were lucky to have a room with a patio on the 18th floor that overlooked this magnificent building. It glistens especially in the morning and again in the evening as the sun bounces off the reflective panels at the top

Actually it is almost sure that you have seen the Chrysler Building before, since it is displayed in too many movies and series. It is very impressive from distance. However, as you approach the building you may be dissapointed, since it does not look as you may imagine it to be. It worth your while though and situated in the... More

You can only visit the lobby at this wonderful building, as all 77 floors are occupied by offices! There are some interesting facts about the building stuck on the walls inside the lobby. The lobby itself it very dated and it's great that it hasn't been modernised and kept in it's original decor.
