Whilst this is now a commercial office block with iconic architecture, it's well worth a quick look inside the foyer at the opulent Art Deco style. There is an information display detailing some of the building's history and it's well worth spending 10 to 15...More

The tallest Art Deco style architecture that I've ever seen! Definitely photo worthy. It's located on the East Side of Midtown Manhattan, at the intersection of 42nd Street and Lexington Avenue. It is the world's tallest brick building with a steel structure. As of 2015,...More

They literally don’t build them like this anymore. Incredible design. You can’t get in as there is no observation deck. If you know someone who works in there visit it that way. You’ll get great pics of it from the other skyscrapers and at night...More

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
