Chrysler Building

Situated on the East Side of Manhattan at the intersection of 42nd Street and Lexington Avenue, the 1,046-foot-tall Chrysler building was once the world’s tallest building. The iconic Art Deco-style skyscraper is still regarded as one of the finest buildings in New York City and the entire country, but unfortunately, tourists can no longer ascend to the top, and will have to settle for visiting the lobby (which isn’t especially interesting) or viewing the building from afar, which we’d recommend instead.

For the best view, grab a drink at Bar 54 on the rooftop of the Hyatt Times Square.
