The WTC is crap.

Chrysler easily beats out Empire State.

I vote in Chrysler, the WTC was without grace, and the empire state is not as detailed as the Chrysler.

1- Crysler Building (the upper part is very close to perfection! nice! nice! nice!!)
2- Empire State Building (very iconic!)
3- WTC (its only famous for having been the talles in New York and for having been target for terrorists. the look of these towers is simply bland, though impressive)

And Chrysler by far, like i said in the chrysler thread, The Chrysler building is the best skyscraper ever constructed, period. its the jewel of all skyscrapers. Nothing can beat the crown, the gargoyles, or the interior of such a skyscraper like the Chrysler building, its an icon, a masterpiece, and something New York, the United states, and the world can be proud of

Empire State vs. Chrysler Buildings

The WTC was mainly interesting for its structural solution to building a tall structure with lots of floor space. It is pointless to compare it to the skyscrapers of the 1930's. A comparison to the Sears tower would be more apt.

The Chrysler Building is interesting in its details, as some have noted, but my opinion is that if you look at how the sections of the building are arranged, without regard to the decorative details, it looks somewhat awkward. The Empire State Building has balance that the Chrysler lacks, a classic shape that one never tires of. That is why it has become the symbol of that era of building, not because it was the tallest.

I think all four of them are great to look at, b/c they all have their good qualities.
