Wow! Great Pics!. I really need to go check it out up close in person...I see the core went all the way to the top. The perimeter is at 88th level and it sure looks like 2 levels above it

It goes well with the Chrysler Building.

And you know how most buildings look shorter than they are from street level? This thing looks massive from street level so imagine how tall it must look without any weird perspective.

Although the Chrysler building is fast approaching 100 years, it has to be said that it's still one of the most beautiful skyscrapers ever made. A masterpiece.

The Chrysler Building is a masterpiece of design.

This new overgrown lego-set, however...

They're taking the plastic film off of some windows.

This tower will really glisten in the sunlight.

Don't they have to take that layer of film off after that?









And since I have seen other forumers do it, and you guys love the Chrysler, I might as well post a bonus shot taken a few days ago by me:

I love it. The glass looks great without the plastic sheet (as expected).
