Chrysler Building

Newer Older

Chrysler Building with its sunburst-like pinnacle of Art Deco style... is one of my favorite NYC buildings, though not as tall or famous as the Empire State Building, but its lines and gargoyles always make it shine gracefully in the sky.

Architect: William Van Alen
Location: New York
Date: 1928-1930
Style: Art Deco

    A wonderful glimpse, with composition and colors that serve to isolate and accentuate the Art Deco style. Wow! Terrific work.

    I saw this in the 50+ Faves group and Faved it.

    It is an excellent shot and I think that if a worthwhile photo - like the ones in this thread - is just a few faves short, I am glad to help!

    I'm at 44 in this group, take a look at my 9/11 photo in this thread, see if you like it! Thanks for your consideration.
