The Chrysler Building - Art Deco design. 405 Lexington Ave, NY NY. I wanted to see this more than the Empire State Building on my first visit to Manhattan. Built 1930. When I read Ayn Rand's "The Fountainhead" I thought of this building a lot.
Chrysler Building. The gorgeous walls of the lobby are made with a very expensive African marble. It is clear that no expense was spared when creating the building. The random yet repeated patterns play off the style of the rest of the lobby extremely well.
