If you are headed down 42nd Street towards the Empire State Building, make sure to take time to see the Chrysler Building. Located at 42nd and Lexington Avenue, the beautiful Art Deco structure was completed in 1930. For a while there, the 1,045-foot building was the tallest structure in the world. The building is still one of the most recognizable and photographed buildings in NYC. Inside, there are walls of red-veined African marble and Edward Trumbell murals. There is no admission, but you cannot go beyond the ground floor. While we were there, we only got a chance to photograph the building. There was a Polish Pride Parade in progress, blocking us from being able to cross over. We went to the Empire State Building, and when we came out, it was still going on! You are offered an amazing view of the building on the north side of the Empire State Building.
