"Chrysler Building" Chrysler Building Tip by SnoopySue

Chrysler Building, New York City: 80 reviews and 132 photos


Before I visit NY, I always thought that Chrysler building is Empire State Building and vice versa. Now I could make the difference but still cannot understand why Chrysler building is so underestimated for tourist purposes in comparison to ESB. It stands at 320 m but it lost the title of tallest building in the world to the ESB a few months after its completion in 1930.
