It's one of NYC landmarks that you must see for yourself, and you can see it from many parts of the city. I would suggest seeing it from around the New York public library at Bryant park if you want to see it in full. Of course you can get closer, around grand central station, but then you might be...

You can see the Chrysler Building from so many places across town and think that it is impressive, but that's nothing until you get up close. Sadly we went by it on a Saturday so were not allowed to linger in the lobby and take photos like you can on the weekday, so be sure to time you visit for... More

Probably my favorite skyscraper of all places. Beautiful, just beautiful. Shines in every photo. Lobby was interesting but not much to see.

If here is ONE beautiful skyscraper, it's the Chrisler Building. And after all the reviews i read about the lobby, i expected far more. To sum up: i liked the Empire's lobby more. It's more represenative, more high-ceiling, more impressive. Therefore just four out of five points.

On the same day as our second attempt to go to the Empire State Building's skydeck (the first day had very little visibility), we also went to the Chrysler Building. We saw the rival structure from the top of Empire, and figured it looked cool enough to see it the same day. I used my smartphone's park whiz app to... More

If you like deco style you have to visit the lobby of this iconic building. acres of marble, wonderful ceiling and wall paintings and beautiful marquetry door panels on the lifts.

This is one if my favourite buildings in New York and a must see for anyone. It is a shame that you cannot go any further than the lobby but as a monument to Art Deco- it is amazing!

This would have to be my absolute favorite. Yes there are taller buildings, but for me this one has the most character. It stands out from all the buildings around it and became the building I used to keep my bearings while wandering the city. I am actually struggling to explain why I like this building so much, but if... More
