While the building is not open to tours or observation deck, the lobby itself is worth taking a lot. Very beautiful!

Absolutely stunning, iconic building as scene in many movies. You really do have to see this stunning edifice. Thereafter this beautiful building becomes another everyday backdrop to your NYC trip..... Now how cool is that.

We could see the building from our resort window and it was beautifully lit at night. Made a very pleasant sight for us to look at over a glass of wine as we relaxed in our room exhausted from the day of sight seeing.

Not far from the Empire State Building but very different experience. The Chrysler Building is ultimately a functional office building and as such, visitors are not able to go any further than the lobby. There is a little information board about the building but that's...More

Had the chance to walk around the building and once again it has to be one of the prettiest buildings in all of NYC.

no tour but I have the chance to know a company inside and the view is wonderful because they are close to the top.

There is no viewing deck at the Chrysler building; currently, the best panorama of the New York City skyline is The Top of the Rock at Rockefeller center high above the skating rink; it costs around $28 dollars for adults to stay as long as they want; it is without question the best view in New York........

The viewing deck at the Chrysler Building has been closed for decades, so get your Manhattan views either at 30 Rock or the Empire State, or the magnificent One World Trade observatory downtown. BUT, don't miss the Chrysler... More
