Chrysler Building (1930)
US National Historic Landmark

If you are planning on renting an office at the Chrysler Building important information follows. Completed in 1930, the Chrysler Building was NYC’s tallest at 1,046 feet (including its spire) for less than a year when it was surpassed by the Empire State Building. Constructed for the Chrysler Automotive Company, many of its design elements exemplify the machine age of the 1920s. It is considered to be a leading example of Art Deco architecture.
