I'm gonna go with One Liberty Plaza on this one. After closer inspection, I realised how great it really is.

As much as I love SwissRe, I just have to vote for Chrysler.

The top of Chrysler is just so perfect, majestic and refined. It's also very old and has stood the test of time extremely well.

SwissRe looks stunning on the London skyline - and is a truly remarkable building - but it lacks the perfection of Chrysler, and there are certain tiny 'errors' in the crown if you know where to look. It would still be my runner up choice though.

Well those finalists do not fit to my understanding of a crown. I actually look for something which really looks like crown. My favorite would be smt like US Bank,LA or Westend, Frankfurt.

But among the finalists, Chrysler kicks the ass

Tribune Tower, Chicago

The top actually looks somewhat like a crown.
