About these ratings

Technically, the Chrysler Building is an office building open Monday through Friday, but you don't need to go inside to appreciate its aesthetic appeal. Recent visitors praise the building's unique architectural style. "The Chrysler building is awesome. I am amazed by its beauty and grandeur every time I see it, and cannot imagine New York City without it," said one TripAdvisor user.

Built in 1930, the Chrysler had a short-lived run as the tallest building in the city, before it was usurped of its title by the Empire State Building. Nevertheless, this 1,046-foot high skyscraper remains a favorite of New Yorkers for its classic art deco style. And unlike the Empire State, at this site you won't need an expensive entry ticket, a strong stomach to stand soaring heights or patience for long lines to see what all the fuss is about. You can behold the building's menacing gargoyles and triangular openings from many spots in Manhattan. If you do have a chance, however, go inside to see the lobby's ornately painted ceiling or the beautiful woodwork on the elevators.

You'll reach to the Chrysler building if you take the S, 4, 5, 6, or 7 trains to the Grand Central-42nd St. station.
