Chrysler Building

Here's a misty nighttime shot of the Chrysler building on East 42nd Street. I've never managed to get a very good shot of that building. Here's a little info from Wikipedia:

Standing at 319 metres (1,047 ft), it was the world's tallest building for 11 months 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-metre (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 level with the Chrysler Building in height. The Chrysler Building is a classic example of Art Deco architecture and considered by many contemporary architects to be one of the finest buildings in New York City

superbe photo du Chrysler dans la nuit et la brume. C'est le plus beau de tous, juste dommage que l'on ne puisse pas le visiter (mais l'entrée est superbe avec les peintures du chrysler)
superb picture of Chrysler in the night and fog. It is the most beautiful of all, just a pity that we can not visit (but entry is superb with paintings chrysler)

I'll through my lot in with the architects who think it's one of the finest.

I love that roof but I've never been in the building.

Note: I have never before had a real word for a verification word. Today it's 'hated'. The irony!

I think this is a very lovely shot.

The Chrysler Building is an inspired architectural masterpiece. Your capture of it in the misty evening glow does it justice.

I like the top of the building drowned in the mist ...

Hi Lori! Chrysler is my favourite of all NYC skyscrapers! Great picture! The Misdtown skyline is superb, and the Spoon Sculpture is quite amazing! Also loved to see the brides... ;)
In a different mood, Blogtrotter, now at the Bardo Museum - some of the best Roman mosaics in the world - has been missing you! Enjoy and have a great week!

I love this building, I prefer it to the Empire States building. This is a great shot of it at night. I like the mist.

This is my favorite NYC building. I've seen hundreds of photos of it from various angles, but I think this one is unique.
