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.

  • This is a great building but you can see the outside and the lobby. In 15 minutes you are done. It is better to see at night for the illumination. 
  • While outwardly it is wonderful to see this building, not let you choice who see it from the outside. Enjoy the best view we recommend that you upload to the floor 102 of the Empire State! It is wonderful as the Sun lights up top, it is all a delicacy!

  • This was an interesting older architechtural marvel - great looking building from the inside and especially outside. Very good experience. 
  • Simply amazing! Both the roof and the interior at the lobby! Beautiful art deco! A must see!
  • Beautiful but the existance of tallest bulding in the World for the Chrysler Building was just one year after then the Empire State Building was completed in 1931 and for 42 years holding the record.
  • One of the most historic buildings I've seen. Great looking structure of the building. Overall great for photos and exploring inside.
  • I've always admired this building it's truly spectacular. I've always ays seen it afar but to approach the building and stand underneath it's great was an experience for me. I can't get enough of NYC architecture.
  • Interesting, awesome structure with important facts. Also was a great locator point for finding our hotel 😊!
