Probably the world's most beautiful skyscraper imo, specially considering its age.
Last time we were in NYC 5 years ago we were allowed to enter the lobby, now that's not the case any more. Such a pity.
Still my fav NYC building, just deducting one star because of that.
See some amazing pics I captured from High Line and from Vanderbilt tower.

You can't get into the building so have to admire its fabulous architecture from the street below or from afar as it can been seen from so many other high rise viewing points. Would have been nice to just get into the lobby even.

The Chrysler Building is one of New York’s most notable skyscrapers and one of the world’s most revered buildings.

In May of 2018, I brought myself and my wife for a visit to the Chrysler Building to celebrate our Happy Four Year Relationship Anniversary!!!

Owned by both the Signa Holding & RFR Holding, the Chrysler Building was fully constructed in 1930 by Walter Chrysler of the Chrysler Corporation and it was designed by architect, William Van Alen.

Standing at 1,046 tall, the Chrysler Building has been showcased in many popular films, such as Independence Day, Deep Impact, the Avengers and Men in Black 3.

While the Chrysler Building lacks an observation deck, the building does allow visitors to come and see it’s gorgeous Art Deco designed hall on the ground floor. Both my wife and I very much enjoyed viewing the Art Deco hall and took great pictures!!!

When visiting New York City, both my wife and I recommend that you definitely make to time to see and visit the Chrysler Building!!!

Had to admire this building from outside, close up and from afar. it is one of my favorites in NY as the 20s style is distinctive and beautiful. Love when it is lit up at night. Also located in a marvelous neighborhood full of landmarks.

Probably the Chrysler Building is the most recognizable skyscraper among the many you can see in New York, you will recognize it even if you’re very far from it! And in my opinion it’s one of the most beautiful…

Wow, a fantastic building when seen in person, much better then was expecting. Only observed from the outside but nevertheless. Another masterpiece of NYC architecture. Photos will follow shortly.

My 8 yo and I entered, masked of course, on Monday 8/16/2021 at 1:30pm and were immediately ordered out of the lobby by a security guard. We asked if the lobby would ever be open to the public and he poorly communicated that we were not and would not ever be welcome there. What the heck?

There are many built in NY. The best elevator inside the building has to be in here. Apart from this though, nothing more for tourists
