The Chrysler Building taken from the viewing platform at the top of the Empire State Building.

The Chrysler Building is an Art Deco skyscraper in New York City, located on the east side of Manhattan at the intersection of 42nd Street and Lexington Avenue.

Standing at 319 m (1,047 ft) high, it was briefly the world’s tallest building before it was surpassed by the Empire State Building in 1931. However, the Chrysler Building remains the world’s tallest brick building.

After the destruction of the World Trade Center, it was again the second tallest building in New York City until December 2007, when the spire was raised on the 365.8 m (1,200 ft) Bank of America building, pushing the Chrysler Building into third position. In addition, the New York Times Building, which opened in 2007, is exactly tied with the Chrysler Building in height, making the two buildings tied for 3rd position.

Despite the change in height ranking in New York, the Chrysler Building is still a classic example of Art Deco architecture and considered by many, at least among contemporary architects, to be one of the finest buildings in New York City, a true work of art.
