The incredible thing about the Chrysler is that it was essentially a cheaper building than what was originally supposed to be constructed on that site.

Was it cheaper because they used brick instead of stone?

New York State Senator William H.Reynolds sold the development to Chrysler as a result of the economic downturn before the building was redesigned -

One of the greatest lobbies in any skyscraper today. Too bad, modern towers are not built with this same kind of grandeur.

Sadly alot of clients view lobbies as a waste of space, according to one book I read

Those are the best photos of the lobby that I've ever seen.
It's like an art deco fever dream.
