I love art deco era things. The lobby of this building is one of the WORLD'S best examples of art deco. I am not sure if they have an observation deck or not, they might not have one.

Although there is no tour here , it’s worth a look at this grand old Art Deco building. The closer you get the worse the view is but you can admire the workmanship.

Just walk into the lobby and look at the beautiful walls and floor. The ceiling is a unique work of art.

The beauty of this building radiates across New York, its an iconic Art Deco almost never happened building, sneak a peek into the lobby if you get chance for more joy, well worth a visit.

This has to be the most beautiful building in New York. It tends to get lost amid the mass of glass and steel but it is a gorgeous example of the Art Deco movement.

This iconic structure is great for photographs. It is not open for visitors but you can step inside and see the lobby. T he Art Deco buildings such as this one and The Empire State Building are quite beautiful in a sea of skyscrapers.

This is a gorgeous example of Art Deco style and an absolute favorite. Seeing the Chrysler Building lit up at night grounds you in NYC. Unfortunately, there is no access to the top of the building, or the interior other than the lobby. You can...More
