The Chrysler Building

 My favourite building!
 The Chrysler Building is an Art Deco skyscraper in New York City,
located on the east side of Manhattan
 in the Turtle Bay area at the intersection of
42nd Street and Lexington Avenue.
- it's 319m tall

-a classic example of Art Deco architecture
and considered by many contemporary architects
to be one of the finest buildings in New York City

It was the headquarters of the Chrysler Corporation
from 1930 until the mid-1950s, but,
although the building was built and designed
specifically for the car manufacturer,
the corporation did not pay for the construction of it and never owned it,
as Walter P. Chrysler decided to pay for it himself,
so that his children could inherit it.


Noticed this funny statue in NoHo:
 "Golden Boy"
on the facade of Puck Building
Gilded statue by sculptor Henry Baerer of
Shakespeare's character Puck,
from A Midsummer's Night Dream,
on the northeast corner at Houston and Mulberry
