What are the top floors of the Chrysler building like?

Do we have any pictures of the top floors of the Chrysler building? I have searched around and found a few looking out, but none of the interior.

Did you see the movie ' Aviator ' with Leonardo DeCaprio about the life of Howard Hughes ? I know the interior shots of the office in the top levels of the Chrysler building would have been studio sets but they must have made historic renditions close to what might have been ? I expect any current offices would hold onto Art Deco features incorporating modern technology ? I have only been into the Lobby and found it very beautiful but that's not what your after.............

Could John Malkovich be a skyscraper admirer?

One question I don't believe I'll ever get an answer to is this: Is the level of the cupola with 1 triangle occupiable? I realize that this level is actually just the bottom of the spire, but I have no idea whether it is accessible or not. Does anyone know?

The following article has a couple of pictures of a dentist office near the top.

I had heard about this office before, but all I had assumed was that it was only around 60 floors up, not in the cupola. I'll definitely make an appointment there once I live in New York.
