I am a professional architectural photographer and the Chrysler Building continues to rate as the most beautiful building in the world for me. I will never forget entering one of the amazing inlaid wood panel elevators and being stunned by its beauty. I am still looking for a good scale model of this structure.

We never actually went inside but even from the ground the building is stunning. Very art-deco and almost gothic appearance with the gargoyles on the roof and chromed finish. One of the most striking buildings in the Manhattan skyline and well worth a photo.

I have visit this monument based on movies but when I arrived there, I can't believe it was true. Is one of the best and sightseeing building I have seen before on my experience, besides of his story around.

Beautiful to see, especially with the colours of sunset upon it. Wonderful lobby too. No observation deck, in case you were wondering.

It is such a wonderful site to view as you are walking along, or traveling in a car or taxi throughout NYC. They offer a wonderful and informative tour of the building with a detailed history of this amazing building.

Almost impossible to see the building from the street, this is just a big construction site everywhere. But when you get inside, this is a whole different story - magic atmosphere. All this colors and patterns of Art Deco - just great.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
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 and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
