Chrysler Building in New York, Art Deco architecture poster wall art.

The Chrysler Building is an Art Deco style skyscraper located on the East Side of Midtown Manhattan in New York City, it was designed by architect William Van Alen for a project of Walter P. Chrysler.

The Chrysler Building is a classic example of Art Deco architecture and considered by many contemporary architects to be one of the finest buildings in New York City. In 2007, it was ranked ninth on the List of America’s Favorite Architecture by the American Institute of Architects. It was the headquarters of the Chrysler Corporation from 1930 until the mid-1950s. Although the building was built and designed specifically for the car manufacturer, the corporation did not pay for the construction of it and never owned it, as Walter P. Chrysler decided to pay for it himself, so that his children could inherit it.
