New York’s Chrysler Building is Getting an Observation Deck

The Chrysler Building, an Art Deco skyscraper, built in 1928, is getting a brand-new observation deck.

The Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) unanimously approved building owner RFR Realty’s proposal for a glass-walled viewing platform that will be open to the public.

Architecture firm Gensler and RFR presented renderings of the space and details of their plans at an LPC meeting.

The building, located at 405 Lexington Ave. between 42nd and 43rd streets, is 77 floors. The deck will be located on terraces that surround the 61st floor, just above the silver eagles that jut out from the tower at every corner.
