Iconic and beautiful building. A prime example of flamboyant art-deco architecture, which in my opinion, is the pride and joy of NYCs skyline. Do not be afraid to poke your head in the lobby and have a sneak peak. Unfortunately you cannot go inside the building, but just looking at the beautiful exterior is enough.

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 Chrysler is the grand prize of any skyscraper hunter when in NYC, what a real beauty she is. From all angles she exudes class and attention. Even though the lobby is the only part of the building you can visit, it really is worth while as it's spectacular with beautiful wood inlays and pristine Art Deco elegance. An absolute... More

The Chrysler building is neat to view at a distance, and the lobby is beautiful. But all you can see is the lobby, and burly guards ensure you do not venture elsewhere, or even dare to take any videos in the lobby! Okay, but not much to see.

This is a beautiful and unique building the steel panels on top are its crowning glory it's sort of hard to find a place to see it but it's worth the effort and walk.
