One of the most iconic elements in New York City skyline images can be found when viewing Chrysler Building panoramic pictures. This Art Deco skyscraper remains the tallest brick building in the world, and was originally intended to house the corporate headquarters of the Chrysler Corporation. Panoramas and Chrysler Building pictures show the building has a number of nods to its namesake, such as gargoyles modeled after the hood ornaments of the Chrysler Plymouth model.
An iconic reminder of the Art Deco era of the 1920s and 1930s, when viewing panoramas of the Chrysler Building it is easy to imagine the great excitement its construction held at the time. One of the great moments in its construction was the secret building and final hoist of the spire, which took less than two hours. With the addition of its spire, the Chrysler Building was, for a time, the tallest building in the world, and became the first building to exceed 1,000 feet in height.
