“Grand building”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012 via mobile

This was right near our hotel so we saw it every day, it's a grand old building and a trip in the foyer is worth a visit too they have been renovating to ensure it remains in its original grand condition

“Check out the lobby.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

There is no observation tower like the Empire State Building but the lobby is an amazing tribute to that Art Deco period.

“Beautiful sky scraper”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

You could locate it when in Times square and follow it. You are not allowed to go up the building. There is no sky deck like empire state building. It worth to look at the architecture tough.

“The Most Beautiful Skyscraper in New York”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

That's what most New Yorkers think. The Chrysler Building is consistently chosen as the favorite tall building of the locals, lovely by day and stunning at night when lit in simple white. There's no observation deck - it's offices all the way up - but you can see its Art Deco lobby. Hard to believe that except for the lower floors which are clad in limestone, this is a brick-clad building. Seldom have bricks been more elegant.

“can not go up”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

we went to see this great building situated on Lexington ave and 42nd street, Manhattan, NY. We were disappointed to know that only the ground floor lobby is open to the public as from 1st floor onward there are offices. So we saw shining red granite walls, marble floor, and some pictures and some writings affixed on the wall giving details of the building. Nothing special except that the hall looks great. Viewed the building from outside and slipped for the subway at nearby grand central station.
