An Art Deco skyscraper and one of the tallest skyscrapers in New York City. For a short period of time (11 months) before the Empire State Building was finished in 1931, it actually was the tallest building in New York.
It was built for the Chrysler company (though the company no longer has its headquarters there) and the Chrysler-related features were embedded into its design.
There are 77 floors in total and 32 elevators. The building appears in many films (e.g. Men in Black III).
Only the lobby is open to the public, the rest of the building is unfortunately not accessible to tourists. Despite that, the building is definitely worth seeing since it is a true gem of Art Deco style.
Only the lobby can be visited, there is no observation deck.
