The Chrysler's Crown

    Newer Older

    This is without doubt the most stunning building in New York. It took my breath away the first time I saw it. In fact most of my time during my three nights here was spend finding interesting views of this building. So rest assured, there are plenty more to come!This one was taken on a rainy evening near Grand Central Station.

    I would like to thank everybody for any comments you have to offfer, good or bad. I read every single comment left, and I check out the photostream of every single person who adds me as a contact. I might not add you back, but I will certainly review and comment on a few of your shots!

    Chrysler Building (wiki):
    The Chrysler Building is an Art Deco style skyscraper in New York City, located on the east side of Manhattan in the Turtle Bay area at the intersection of 42nd Street and Lexington Avenue. Standing at 1,047 feet (319 m),[5][6] it was the world's tallest building for 11 months before it was surpassed by the Empire State Building in 1931. After the destruction of the World Trade Center, it was again the second-tallest building in New York City until December 2007, when the spire was raised on the 1,200 foot (365.8 m) Bank of America Tower, pushing the Chrysler Building into third position. In addition, The New York Times Building, which opened in 2007, is exactly level with the Chrysler Building in height. [7] Both buildings were then pushed into 4th position, when the under construction, One World Trade Center, surpassed their height.
