It was built in 1931 and represents classic Art Deco architecture. The lobby is incredible and it is awe inspiring to glance up and see the steel gargoyles on the top of the building!!! A must see in NYC!!!

The most beautiful sight in the city, and you can enjoy close up or from a distance. It is no longer the tallest building in the world, but wikipedia states that it is the tallest brick building in the world.

Conveniently placed for a quick visit to see the Art Deco ground floor on 42nd Street the Chrysler Building is interesting inside and out. The tower glows and take a close look at those gargoyles!

Some of the best things in life are free. The Chrysler Building does not have an entrance fee -- there are no tours and you can only visit the lobby but it's well worth the visit to this wonderful Art Deco building. There are a few signs / photos detailing the history of the building. The ceiling of the lobby is a fascinating mural. Take a look past the security barriers at the wooden elevator doors -- so elaborate. It's a shame that it's not possible to see more of the building. I'm sure it's wonderful.

the Chrysler building is a beautiful building. Make sure you take a few minutes to view. There are no tours available. Great Art Deco building.

It gets often overlooked, but definitely worth a closer look.
