Slightly overshadowed by the Empire State I think the Chrysler is a more iconic building of the age of skyscrapers and the building looks great from all angles. The steel shines in the sunlight and its amazing to look at when the crown and spire...More

I've been a fan of the Chrysler Building, which is really iconic. Love the shiny steel structure and the building looks really grand.

Whilst you cannot visit this building in reality you do not need to it just seems to be there when you look up! The design is true Art Deco and truly awe inspiring. Take time to look up and enjoy and marvel how it was...More

I love seeing this building. It’s so different and looks great from so many angles. The different shape of it makes for amazing pictures. Took great pictures from Empire State Building and Street level bear grand central station.

You are free to walk into the lobby area however you can’t go up this building, inside the lobby you can see the beautiful Art Deco styling and there are a number of pictures and information about the buildings history.

We only seen this building from the outside but I heard that the lobby is beautiful also. From the outside, the building is amazing! At night, when the building is lit up, it is even more beautiful!

What a beautiful piece of architecture, iconic image which you can’t fully appreciate until you have seen it in the flesh hop on down for a look up close

Great view of it from the Empire State Observation deck. Also can see it well from outside Grand Central station. Can be awkward from some other places on ground level as other skyscrapers block the view of it. It shines well on a sunny day

Just to see it from the outside is stunning but if you get the chance to go inside, just have a look around and marvel at the beauty of the art-deco interior. Those blokes knew a thing or two.....

I love this Chrystler Building, the shape of it, near to Grand Central Station. A very iconic building of the Manhattan Skyline.

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
