couldn't get access to the building which was disappointing but to see it close up after looking at it from a distance from top of the rock and the empire state building is wonderful.

There is no viewing platforms in this building, all you can really do is enter the main entrance for free and take a look at the Art Deco setting, wall tiles and lighting and lift entrances made of wood

Another iconic building. I just love its art-deco style, so beautiful. if you are visiting NYC, don't forget to point your camera to this building. Doesn't get as much attention but way better than the empire state building.

There's plenty to appreciate about the architecture from the outside, but I wish I could have seen a bit more of the inside as well. As it was I got chased out for trying to take a picture of the lobby.

Can be viewed from many points. Great at night. It was closed when we visited so we are not sure if you can go in. We went into the reception and it is amazing .

My longtime favorite skyscraper in the US. It's worth to walk inside and see the art deco motives around the lobby and on different levels in the halls. But its real beauty can be seen during the night when the building is illuminated.

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
Is their a ticket which covers the viewing platform and a meal in the centre.

Bear in mind that any building you go up will not have that building in the view, so I would recommend going up the rock or one world, as you'll want the Chrysler or the empire state in your view. And eat somewhere else... More
