Chrysler Building, New York City

(2,200+ reviews on the web)
Architectural Building Tourist Spot
Known for its classic Art Deco architecture, Chrysler Building is one of the city's most recognizable landmarks. Located on Manhattan's east side, the 319 m (1046 ft) skyscraper, built in 1930, used to be the world's tallest building until the construction of the Empire State Building. Because it was originally intended to be the Chrysler Corporation's headquarters, the building has replicas of 1929 Chrysler radiator caps as the corner ornamentation on the 31st floor. Although much of the building is leased to businesses and unavailable to visitors, take a moment to admire the building's exterior and visit the lobby to get a closer look at the Art Deco details and the renowned ceiling mural by Edward Trumbull. Work out when and for how long to visit Chrysler Building and other New York City attractions using our handy New York City tourist route planner.

  • The Chrysler Building has a unique architecture for a sky scraper. It is truly amazing and of of a kind. I enjoy the view on this building. It really stands out from typical modern high rises.
  • Beautiful Art-Deco building and I actually like it more than the Empire. Very unique, they don't make them like that anymore! And with gargoyles :)
  • Wonderful Art Deco building shame you can only visit the lobby
  • Impressive building with shops accessible below, you can only gain access to the upper levels if you have meetings or reservations with the companies that are based here.
  • One of the most beautiful and well known building not just in New York but in whole world .
