I use to work on that building. I love the construction and how well preserved is kept. The lobby is a beautiful expo of the art deco era. The outside top of the building is pure art. In a city famous for tall buildings this...More

Awesome to see. Real Art Deco, but limited by not being able to have a proper look around. Still absolutely gorgeous

Chrysler Building has always been my favorite building from NYC. It's so very beautiful, original (even having being built in the '30s!), you can recognize it from blocks away... very worthseeing!

By day or night, the iconic Chrysler Building does not disappoint. Its amazing spire is inspiring! The lighting at night accentuates its one-of-a-kind design. Few buildings can command my attention as thoroughly.

This is a Landmark. Everytime we come to NYC, it's my favorite fotomotive. As a whole and in detail it's state of the art for Art Deco. Be aware that at different times and light it varys its looks. See you next time.

This place is definitely a landmark of New York City. Its architecture is amazing, but the best view of this building is at night when its lights turned on.

Nice to see in person. It's a landmark. I didn't do the lobby. Looks cool at night and you can say you saw it.

The viewing deck at the Chrysler Building has been closed for decades, so get your Manhattan views either at 30 Rock or the Empire State, or the magnificent One World Trade observatory downtown. BUT, don't miss the Chrysler... More

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
