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.

The building is quite impressive but you can't get up. Is close to the New York Public Library, you can see it from there.

I enjoyed seeing the exterior of this building every chance I got. Really unique. I was able to go in the lobby and check out the interior and thought it was really cool as well.

Unfortunately it's a functioning office building with shops downstairs and strict security... You may be able to capture a glimpse of inside the elevators, but otherwise the lobby and exterior are as good as it gets.

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
