My favorite would be the Chrysler Building, especially due to its crown at the top. I also love Art Deco architecture, so..

I will rank mine in the time period built.

1902 to 1914:
1. Woolworth-lovely building, one of my favorites of all time.
2. Flatiron-Great usage of lot shape and intriguing design.
3. Singer-I just love the crown atop it.
4. MetLife Tower-Very sloped cupola, nice clock.
5. Municipal-Huge building, but not my favorite.

1930-1933:
1. Chrysler-The best building ever designed. Magnificent crown.
2. 40 Wall-Not a common favorite, but I love the audacity of its crown.
3. AIG-Another great design, interesting crown.
T4. GE-Most unique design of this period. Pretty good.
T4. Empire: Decent design. Massive building however.
6. 20 Exchange: Plain design, not a huge fan.

1963 to 1977:
1. Citigroup Center-Great design and very individual in color and shape.
2. MetLife Building-Interesting shape and color for buildings in this drab period.
3. One Astor-Nice top, nice color contrast
4. 1095 Ave. of the Ams.-Beautiful color.
5. 1WTC-Plain design, but supreme size. My favorite antenna in the way it attached to the building.
T6. Solow and W.R. Grace-Nice curves.

1980-1998:
All nice, some notables: Trump Tower, Bertelsmann.

1999-present:
Again, all great, notably: BOA, Conde Nast, WTC Complex, One57, etc.

That's easy
Chrysler Building
It's the king of art deco and for me it's the peak of architecture overall. If you take in account that it was made 80 years ago then it's even more impressive.
Even though it's nice to pour some concrete and slap some glass on it, there's a near 300-meter wall full of perfectly aligned bricks.
I only post a small pic of the beauty since there is no need for anything more.

I agree - the most beautiful skyscraper in NYC. In fact, imho. even the best one ever conceived, a true piece of art. I'm glad to have seen it up close and personal:

Two other buildings are my favourites in NYC even though they don't exist anymore. It are the Twin Towers

I love the A.R.B. as well. Only black art deco building I can think of. And I love the curved facades on buildings as well. Solow more than W.R. Grace, but still both are great. Some other notable curved buildings I like are Chase Chicago and Marriot Atlanta.

Not trying to be rude, but if I had to list my least favorite buildings in New York, that would be one of them.

This one will be my all time favorite forever.



I really hope some crazy millionaire ever wants to build an exact replica of it in NYC as a luxury apartment building. Anyways, I know that will never happen, so my favorites after this one are 1WTC and Woolworth Building
