The Chrysler Building

Let's go up the Building!

Let's continue with our amazing trip to the magnificent city of New York. Your next stop now is at the Chrysler Building.

At 42nd and Lexington in Midtown stands the second most famous  skyscraper in New York City, the Chrysler Building. Just a little bit shorter than the Empire State Building, it was built only a year before. The Chrysler Building's architectural details, such as the eagles on the corners of the 61st floor or the multicolored marble in the lobby, make this building a favourite of architecture fans worldwide.

Discovering New York is becoming a truly unforgettable experience!

At the end of the session, you will have:

  • read about the Chrysler Building.
  • organized information about New York at the Google site
  • read and listen about online safety tips.
