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.
