You can only go into the main lobby of the Chrysler (free) but it is a must for the architectural detailing and the painted ceilings. Outside it has the iconic stainless steel gargoyles and tower. The latter is spectacular lit up at night.

couldn't get access to the building which was disappointing but to see it close up after looking at it from a distance from top of the rock and the empire state building is wonderful.

There is no viewing platforms in this building, all you can really do is enter the main entrance for free and take a look at the Art Deco setting, wall tiles and lighting and lift entrances made of wood

Another iconic building. I just love its art-deco style, so beautiful. if you are visiting NYC, don't forget to point your camera to this building. Doesn't get as much attention but way better than the empire state building.

The viewing deck at the Chrysler Building has been closed for decades, so get your Manhattan views either at 30 Rock or the Empire State, or the magnificent One World Trade observatory downtown. BUT, don't miss the Chrysler... More
