Chrysler Building in New York City

New York's Chrysler Building remains one of the city's legendary skyscrapers with its 77 floors and classic Art Deco design. Its architecture is considered by many to be one of the finest buildings in Manhattan.

The Chrysler Building, designed by architect William Van Alen, resides in the Turtle Bay neighborhood on the East Side of Manhattan at the intersection of 42nd Street.

Though there are no official tours, tourists are encouraged to check out the amazing Art Deco lobby which is open to the public from 8:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m.

As of 2019, the Chrysler is the 11th-tallest building in the city, tied with The New York Times Building. There are a few occupants that take up residence, the building remains mainly an office building.

The popular tourist attraction has an estimated four million visitors each year.
