chrysler-building
319 meters high in East Manhattan, once owned by the Chrysler Automobile Company. The skyscraper was built in the art deco style, designed by architect Van Allen. The top is decorated with massive rounded arches crowned by a sharp spire. In general, it feels like the whole structure is floating in the air. The construction is considered one of the most stylish skyscrapers in the world.

You do not need tickets to view this building. The building owners let you walk through the building, even if you have to stay against the wall. In one door and out the opposite side. Along the wall there are photos and a bit of history of this beaut.. Read more »

I had the dream of seeing Chrysler Building since I was young and saw it in the movies. The architecture is breathtaking and it stands out from anywhere you look at the building. I am so happy that I also got the chance to see the lobby from inside, .. Read more »

Only allowed into foyer and have to keep to the sides as u walk around . Like walking back into a 1930s time capsule but tbh nothing to see or do here . It’s a building used by private offices so u can’t go above ground level .

An iconic building just outside the Grand Central Terminal. Hard to miss and worth taking a look at it. You can see the iconic gargoyles featured in so many movies ( Batman, Man in Black, Spiderman etc. )

Firstly you should know that the Chrysler building does NOT have an observatory. That being said, the staff are more than welcoming for you to have a look around the lobby, there's some lovely art work, and it's all kept in the art deco the.. Read more »

We had a great time seeing the beautiful lobby in this art deco treasure of a building! Every piece of the building (elevators, trim, doorways, lighting, etc.) had some element of art deco design in the detail. Truly one of the most beautiful buildin.. Read more »

Undoubtedly the most beautiful skyscraper in New York City. Unfortunately it’s currently not open to the public so we just have to enjoy looking at this Art Deco masterpiece from other parts of the city. One great way to get a good view of it i.. Read more »

Built between 1928 and 1930, the Chrysler Building was briefly the tallest in the world, at 1,046 feet (318.8 metres). It claimed this honour in November 1929—when the building was topped off with a 180-foot (55-metre) spire—and held the .. Read more »

Funny this is still categorized as a tourist attraction because as of March 2023, tourists are not allowed to even enter the lobby. When you enter the building there is a doorman waiting, and you must have an appointment at one of the businesses to g.. Read more »

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 deduc.. Read more »

Not worth visiting, you can’t get inside and there is no good way of taking pictures of the building when close. I would recommend to find a more far away spot with good view for pictures. Architecture is amazing though, unfortunately you can c.. Read more »

Pretty building! I had a delicious view from my desk when I worked in Midtown East. It's easy to spot from high floors in the city or rooftops in western parts of Brooklyn and Queens. If you're getting off a train at Grand Central Station, .. Read more »

Definitely my favorite building in New York City. Stunning on the inside and out. Very Art Deco on the floor I was on. The historical and whimsical hand painted ceiling of the entry way is just the beginning of this immaculate space.

This iconic building from the outside and inside is a tremendous throwback to the late 1920’s and early 1930s. Simply stunning! (Photos taken on iPad 6th Generation)
