And all the pictures are taken from a park. All the buildings around it are spread out far apart, not like in New york.

Chrysler Building.
I really like its top, specially when lit at night.



not a fan of Woolworth - I personally prefer "shorter castles".

I never was big fan of Chrysler and Petronas always was in my personal "top-10 skyscrapers" list, so...
Petronas vs. Woolworth would be more difficult choice though... Not sure how I’ll vote - of course if PTT wins this round

chrysler is short, old (but i agree it is classic)...no skyline view..no colours....just lame...and sits in the middle of 'jungle full of rock'...just a box...with a crown...unlike PTT, it has a park, fusion of modern and nature, wonderful, colourful...and the list goes on....

PTT are just cylinders with triangular extrusions, tapering and insets on the top. They're lonely and have no buildings to compete with, so they look better
The fact that we're still discussing Chrysler is a sign of its sheer perfection and beauty. It's a reminder of pursuit for height, glory and being remembered for decades. Everything that came afterwards is a sign of good business management and credit ability.

Chrysler Building is a box? Are you retarded, blind or just a horrible architectural critic?

The Chrysler building is the direct result of New York City's Building code that required setbacks at certain heights to allow for sunlight.



As the building goes higher the tower sets back and get thinner. It's topped off with a cone shaped crown.

Where do you see box?

Why dont you take two minutes to look where I live, its right there where my username is. CAPE TOWN IN SOUTH AFRICA, not America my friend.

The chrysler is just as colourful as the PTT, if you are referring to the lighting then both suck in comparison to some other buildings. Chrysler is sorrounded because it is built in a city with demand. Where else would it go??? In central park? Are we not judging a building here? In my opinion the new york setting is better than KL.
