    The Chrysler Building is an Art Deco style skyscraper in New York City, located on the east side of Manhattan. The Chrysler Building was designed by architect William Van Alen for a project of Walter P. Chrysler. When the ground breaking occurred in 1928, there was intense competition to build the world's tallest skyscraper. Upon completion in 1930, the added height of the spire allowed the building to achieve that desired status. Today, it still remains the tallest brick building in the world.

    The Chrysler Building is an Art Deco style skyscraper in New York City, located on the east side of Manhattan in the Turtle Bay area at the intersection of 42nd Street and Lexington Avenue. At 1,046 feet (319 m),[4][6][7] the structure was the world's tallest building for 11 months before it was surpassed by the Empire State Building in 1931.[8] It is still the tallest brick building in the world, albeit with an internal steel skeleton. 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 1,200-foot (365.8 m) Bank of America Tower, pushing the Chrysler Building into third position. In addition, The New York Times Building, which opened in 2007, is exactly level with the Chrysler Building in height.[9] Both buildings were then pushed into 4th position, when the under construction One World Trade Center surpassed their height.

"Do skyscrapers ever grow tired/ Of holding themselves up high?/ Do they ever shiver on frosty nights/ With their tops against the sky?/ Do they feel lonely sometimes,/ Because they have grown so tall?/ Do they ever wish they could lay right down/ And never get up at all?" poetess: Rachel Field.
