One of the most easily recognizable skyscrapers in New York, with the beautiful gargoyles hanging out. It’s not possible to get inside so you a quick stop is all you need to admire it.

I love art deco era things. The lobby of this building is one of the WORLD'S best examples of art deco. I am not sure if they have an observation deck or not, they might not have one.

Although there is no tour here , it’s worth a look at this grand old Art Deco building. The closer you get the worse the view is but you can admire the workmanship.

Just walk into the lobby and look at the beautiful walls and floor. The ceiling is a unique work of art.

Bear in mind that any building you go up will not have that building in the view, so I would recommend going up the rock or one world, as you'll want the Chrysler or the empire state in your view. And eat somewhere else... More
