    The Chrysler Building (built by auto maker Walter Chrysler in 1930), with its spectacular, stainless steel, stepped-dome top surmounted by its spear-like spire, is easily the world's most identifiable skyscraper.
For a few months, it was the world's tallest until it was surpassed by the Empire State Building.

Awesome capture and POV of this magnificent building Michelle!!
The Chryslers,Dolsens and Field families were loyalists and escaped to Niagara togethe rduring the Revolution. Walter Chrysler employed a genealogist to do Dolsen genealogy! A little family trivea.

Great shot Michelle. If this were found in a 100 year old collection of the greatest postcards of NYC I'd not be a bit surprised. I'm going to stay linked to this image because I'm anxious to read your answer to Martie's question. Don't keep me waiting a long time now, I'm an old man.
