How can any self-respecting fan of skyscrapers say that about the Chrysler?! I just can't fathom how anyone could say a bad word about it!

Fair enough though - personal preference I suppose
i agree, Chrysler is the quintessential tall building! its numero uno as far as im concerned, still after 75 years! no skyscraper comes close.

I am still surprise that besides the ESB and the Twins, NYC didn't build any other skyscrapers bigger than it was.
