The Big Apple

iphone pictures Chrysler Building NY


Predictions have never been my strong suit. There are few things in this world we can rely on. Seasons change. Time passes. New Yorkers continue to navigate Manhattan in those signature yellow cabs and the Chrysler Building continues to hold its spire to the clouds, whether I’m there or not.

I love the 1930s – for its fashion, music and cocktails, certainly – but perhaps more so for its architecture. It is not an accident that I should choose this building over all other Art Deco gems in the Big Apple. Originally erected in 1930, this landmark building features unparalleled 360-degree views of Manhattan and the outlying area. It overlooks the East River and Central Park. It peeks over Times Square and Grand Central Terminal. And although it will always keep the on-looker at a distance, from within its bowels you hold the city in your palm.
