Chrysler Building
About this creation
The Chrysler Building is an Art Deco-style skyscraper located on the East Side of Midtown Manhattan in New York City. At 1,046 feet (318.9 m), the structure was the world's tallest building for 11 months before it was surpassed by the Empire State Building in 1931. It is the tallest brick building in the world with a steel structure.

Originally a project of real estate developer and former New York State Senator William H. Reynolds, the structure was built by Walter Chrysler, the head of the Chrysler Corporation. The Chrysler Building's construction was characterized by a competition with 40 Wall Street and the Empire State Building to become the world's tallest building. The building served as the corporation's headquarters from 1930 until the mid-1950s.

Upon opening, there were mixed reviews of the building's design, ranging from inane and unoriginal to modernist and iconic. However, the Chrysler Building has slowly evolved into a paragon of the Art Deco architectural style, and in 2007, it was ranked ninth on the List of America's Favorite Architecture by the American Institute of Architects.

Sean Kenney built a version of the Chrysler Building of which this is based on, but I decided to change aspects of the spire so the famous windows could be replicated. In addition I added the famous ice rink and Prometheus statue (although in real life this is at Rockefeller Center) as this finished the base of the building nicely.

Nice job with this build. I am starting to work on a larger version of this and it is definitely quite challenging.

Saying it's awesome would be offensive to this masterpiece!

Very nice job! I like the statue behind the building and the roof. The night pictures are beautiful!
