Chrysler Building - Vintage Images


The Chrysler Building is an art deco skyscraper built between 1928 and 1930. Its  stainless steel spire is a remarkable feature on the Manhattan skyline.

It was briefly the tallest building in the world at 318.8 meters until it was surpassed by the Empire State Building, completed in 1931. It is located at 405 Lexington Avenue at the intersection of 42nd Street.
