William Van Alen’s masterpiece of engineering enjoyed a brief stint as New York’s tallest skyscraper from 1928-1930, until the Empire State Building dwarfed the Art Deco scraper in 1931. Still in use as an office complex, the Chrysler Building is considered one of the most opulent sky-scrapers in New York. Her chrome-lined lobby alone well worth a few minute’s appreciation. Guided tours through nearby Turtle Bay operators occasionally provide a behind-the-scenes peek at the building’s interior – the views from the 82nd floor considered some of the finest in New York. On a clear day, you can see up to 80 miles across the horizon.
