Stainless Steel beauty

I can't get a shot of the Chrysler building because this is in my way.

 

From the AIA Guide:

Former Mobil Building/originally Socony Mobil Building

150 East 42nd St., bet. Lexington & Third Aves.

1955

Harrison & Abramovitz

A 1.6 million square-foot building sheathed with embossed stainless-steel panels. A clever bore to start off with, it is now merely the ultimate architectural tin can.

 

And from the NY TImes
