What a monster of a building - one of many buildings to see in New York. Just up from the Central Station and Bryant Park

When we were recently in NY, we could never really get lost from our hotel as it was just along the street from Chrysler Building so at night especially when it was all lit up, we used it as a beacon go get back to the hotel. The architecture is pretty spectacular too when you have a good look.

Nothing special about this building, except for the fact that its dome resembles some Chrysler radiator. I don't think this is a tourist place, but it gives good view of its top from the street.

I love this building above all other in New York. It is a shame that you cannot get further the lobby and there is no viewing platform. Do not come away from NY without at least seeing it up close.

It seems as if this building is more seen than most tall buildings in NYC given it's location close to the highest tourist attractions. A great guide if your compass of where you are at gets confusing. A beautiful structure far away and up close. Details and lines uniquely different than most tall buildings.

Although you can't get beyond the lobby unless you work or have business there, the lobby is incredibly beautiful and well worth a few minutes if you enjoy art deco architecture as I do.

I don't make that statement flippantly, I just love the Chrysler building, and I'd love a tour inside, but that has never happened, its so iconic, and even though I have seen many icons this is my favorite in the whole world.

This building is beautiful and at night when lit is gorgeous. It is a must see and is a sort of prettier sister of the Empire State in my opinion .

Fabulous art deco lobby. Worth a look. You can't go up the lifts as the building is used for offices, but the lobby area is a public place.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
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.
