Chrysler Building. Way back when I was a foot messenger for a lithographic company, yeah, there used to be such a thing, I made a delivery in the Chrysler Building. The interior is spectacular, this blows away the Empire State building for sheer beauty, while still rising impressively high in the 21st century Manhattan skyline.
The Chrysler Building, NYC - Explored! :D 1/12/2012 The Chrysler Building: Standing at 1,047 feet, it was the world's tallest building for 11 months before it was surpassed by the Empire State Building in 1931. 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 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. Both buildings were then pushed into 4th position, when the under construction, One World Trade Center, surpassed their height. -wikipedia-
"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.
