The Chrysler building, once the tallest building in the world for a short time before the Empire State Building poped up, is the most beautiful building in New York. With the gargoyles adorning the corners of the building just at the bottom of the spire,...More

This is impressive for a brief visit (you can only see the lobby area), and security is rather 'loud' if you do a video, which is not allowed, but there is no info regarding this.

We stepped inside the building and for lovers of architecture this is the most beautful building you could wish to see. Inside and out. Unfortunately you can't get beyond the lobby.

This is a magnificent old art deco building and well worth a visit, you can go into the lobby and wander round and take photos but no further. Access is further restricted to the lobby entrance only on weekends.

Amazing in the sunshine, from top of the Empire State building or the Top of the rocks, but also when you're just below, to see the gargoyles. Enter in the hall, beautiful too.

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
