AOL Travel Editor’s Review

They sure don’t make them like they used to. The 102-story Empire State Building may get all the oohs and aahs from out-of-towners, but the “little” Chrysler building (at 77 floors) is a stunner. Look close enough and you’ll notice the grills of automobiles at the top (the name of the building should be a clue as to why it’s car themed). But there are more than just car parts going on here: gargoyles jut out at floor 59 and eagles perch two floors above that. Made with stainless steel, this striking skyscraper gleams in the sunlight during the day and reflects the city lights at night. Most of the exterior of the building is off limits, but pop into the lobby, open to the public during the day, to get a taste of the marble-clad Art Deco insides.
