“Beautiful from the inside to the outside, day & night”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2013

Other than TOTR and ESB, this is another awesome building that one cannot miss during the visit in NYC.

I managed to get into the lobby to admire the mural on the ceiling but the security wouldn't allow us to take photos of it.

There is a small counter inbetween the 2 lifts that is quite unique but easy to miss because it kinda camouflages itself into the wall.

“art deco at its best”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2013

This is my favorite building in New York to look at. At night or during the day, it is stunning. Take the time to walk through the lobby for a history lesson of the buildings. Access beyond the lobby is limited to employees and their visitors but the lobby is free for quick visit.

“The best looking building on the block”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2013

Like - The title says it all - a masterpiece of design that NY sadly never recreated. On the other hand though, the beauty of NY is that it's always reinventing itself.
Dislike - unable to view inside. Location makes it difficult to get a good angle to photograph it's full glory.

“Good Historic building”

Great history to the building, but in terms of View the Empire state building is better if more expensive.
