“Really cool building”
Reviewed 16 August 2014

This is a beautiful and unique building the steel panels on top are its crowning glory it's sort of hard to find a place to see it but it's worth the effort and walk.

“nice but you can't get up”
Reviewed 13 August 2014

The building is quite impressive but you can't get up. Is close to the New York Public Library, you can see it from there.

Reviewed 13 August 2014

I enjoyed seeing the exterior of this building every chance I got. Really unique. I was able to go in the lobby and check out the interior and thought it was really cool as well.

“The mot Beautiful Building in the Big Apple”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

This is a true Classic. Built in the gilded age of the 1930"s by Walter Chrysler, who had scads of money , this place is amazing even for New York. Its sleek design standout proudly fro all others in midtown. I am very fortunate to work across the street and marvel at it daily. When coming into New Yrk by plane it always stands out as a special spot and the sun reflects off its surfaces attracting your eyes to it.
It is lit at night as well.
Years ago I went to its clue room on top(a private club) but not it is closed. Its lobby is a thing of beauty as well and there are always toursits taking pictures. You should visit it as well; you will not be sorry.
