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.

The Chrysler Building is one of the most interesting architectural masterpieces in NYC. Whenever I have a meeting I again can't help but notice the details of the lobby, elevators, and even the doors. I was told that the parapets that decorate the building up high are actually the hood ornaments of the Chrysler car.

I never get sick of taking photos of the Chrysler Building. It is so beautiful and majestic. Staying in a hotel that overlooks it is even better if you're on a high floor so you can see the higher detail on the building.
