Best looking building in NYC. Shame it only held record of tallest building in NYC for 8 weeks. Go see it or look from empire state building or top of the rock

A very beautiful architecture work is done on this building. This gigantic building gives different looks when seen from different view angles from the road. A must picture for the memory.

I love this building it is my favorite in all NYC. I love the top of the building with all its scallops, windows and majesty. It is beautiful in both daylight hours and at night all lit up. There are great views of this building from Top of The Rock and The Empire State Building.

Easily my favourite of the main skyscraper central Manhattan buildings, this art deco stunner was very visible on my trip as I was staying further down on Lexington Ave. I popped into the lobby one day as I heard it was worth a look - pretty underwhelming to be honest so just as well the exterior is a real corker!

Magnificent building looks and feels like you are in mid Manhattan. Stayed a few blocks away so was glad to wake and see this every morning.

Avoid the VERY EXPESIVE TOURS.... JUST LIKE EVERY TOUR IN NYC, but just to walk around on your own and soak up the view and gradure is wonderful.

The Chrysler building is one of the truly beautiful skyscrapers in New York City. Well worth viewing from many different angles. The history of its competition with the Empire State Building is also fascinating.

You are allowd to enter the lobby to explore/visit/take photographs and generally take in the art deco art work,then go outside and walk a block away as you can not see it when close up because of the hight of the building

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
