If you are an art and architecture buff this is the building for you. Built a year or so before the Empire State Building, it seems small compared but it is the more beautiful of the two. From across the way at the Grand Central...More

My favourite skyscraper. Make sure you pop into the foyer, it won’t cost you anything and there is some information about its history to read. Just gorgeous.

Iconic building which can be seen from afar. We love all our photos of this building and the surrounding area. Take the open top tour bus for best views and photos.

Well worth popping into the foyer to look at this beautiful building. There is interesting information about its history displayed inside and no one will bother you.

Just around the corner from our hotel the Chrysler building didn't disappoint. Great to look at in the day and was spectacular at night
