A beautiful Art Deco designed building that separates its self from any other building in NYC. The attention to detail and ongoing preservation is something to behold for those interested in architecture.

From any angle this has got to be the coolest building in New York and I never get tired of seeing it. Its iconic beauty is second to none and sums up New York. Fantastic.

My dentist resides at the top of this building. Love watching the views of the East River from a very comfy lounge.

Best seen from high, beautiful, sculptural and iconic Art Deco. The foyer is lovely but that's all you'll see unless you have a connection to someone who works there. Would have loved to have see more.

One of my favourite buildings in New York. Good for a quick photo op but nothing more. The building was closed to the public during July and August however wasn't too fussed at all. Great to visit if close by.

no tour but I have the chance to know a company inside and the view is wonderful because they are close to the top.

There is no viewing deck at the Chrysler building; currently, the best panorama of the New York City skyline is The Top of the Rock at Rockefeller center high above the skating rink; it costs around $28 dollars for adults to stay as long as they want; it is without question the best view in New York........

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
Is their a ticket which covers the viewing platform and a meal in the centre.
