The Chrysler Building in New York was built by the architect William Van Alen and its main purpose was to not only headquarter a project by Walter P Chrysler but to be the tallest skyscraper in the world.
The innovative design of the Chrysler Building was created in an Art deco style and is currently situated in Manhattan. The Chrysler Building spent almost a year as the world's tallest building in 1928 but it was then overtaken by the Empire State Building which took over the title.
The Chrysler Building was home to Walter Chrysler's corporation in 1930 and house car manufacturing designs. There have been many Hollywood movies that have used this stylish building as a backdrop for various movies set in New York.
The Chrysler Building today is amongst one of the top favourite buildings and sights in New York.
