Owner description: This Art Deco masterpiece is actually no longer the property of the auto manufacturer.
Reviewed 6 April 2018

Probably one of the most beautiful skyscrapers in the world. The Art Deco style sets it apart and the eagle gargoyles are one of a kind. I hear when the building opened in 1931, the public could go up to the 71st floor as it served as an observation floor. That was stopped in 1945. Now you can only enter the lobby unless you have business on the floors above. We just gazed up at it from below. I think it is most stunning when it is lit up at night.

We didn't go inside, and anyway you can only go into the lobby I think. But the exterior is so pretty - I just fell in love with this beautiful building! The doorways are classic Art Deco styling and we saw it from a bit further away both by day and then by night from the top of the Empire State Building, when it looked just like a gorgeous firework!

Externally, this is probably my fave building in NYC. Inside, it has many examples of the Art Deco style, although for me, the letter boxes and lifts in Chicago are more extravagant.

The building is quite hard to photograph as well. But at least this takes you around the streets of Manhattan. A shame that the lobby is the only place open to the public.

This soaring edifice has been in the NYC skyline since 1930. You can visit the lobby of the Chrysler Building to see the ceiling mural for free. Make the effort if you are an Art Deco fan.

The Chrysler Building is a stunning monument to Art Deco. The first floor definetly had the wow factor. I'm very pleased with this visit.
