You cannot stop looking at the Chrysler building it's iconic, you cannot go up into the building but you are allowed in the lobby area where there is a small display on the history of this great iconic landmark

In a city full of iconic buildings (check out the building that houses a Duane Reed on the corner diagonally opposite), the Chrysler Building has always been my favourite. As you approach, you can see it for quite some way around. Entry is free, although...More

This iconic part of the New York skyline was built in 1930 and represents a great example of the art deco style. See if you can find the various homages to the automobile industry like the hubcap designs and others.

This in my opinion is simply the best. Admittedly you can only go into the lobby as the upper floors are offices but despite this it is worth a visit as it is also free! It is the exterior of the building though that I...More

After all the hype, I expected more of the inside. It was pleasant but not spectacular. Yes there is a lot of marble but...........not worth much of a detour.

Amazing Art Deco building in the centre of New York creating a fantastic centrepiece to the New York skyline

One of the most appealing sights in all of NYC, is that building. From the art deco design, to the bustle at it's base, it always seems a pleasant sight.

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

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

Bear in mind that any building you go up will not have that building in the view, so I would recommend going up the rock or one world, as you'll want the Chrysler or the empire state in your view. And eat somewhere else... More
