Chrysler Building Highly Recommended Highly Recommended Highly Recommended : Michelin's recommendations

In the late 1920s, automobile magnate Walter P. Chrysler commissioned architect William Van Alen to design th tallest building in the world. Completed in 1930, the striking Chrysler Building was indeed the tallest, rising to 1,048ft (77 stories)—until the Empire State Building opened the following year. One of the first buildings to feature exposed metal as an essential part of its design, the Chrysler Building is topped by a distinctive spire of radiant stainless steel arches that glimmers in sunlight and glows in the nighttime illuminations.

    Mon building préféré à New York. La façade Art-Déco et les gargouilles modernes datent ce bâtiment tout en lui conférant une certaine intemporalité.


    Dommage que le bâtiment ne se visite pas.
