This jigsaw puzzle features the Chrysler Building, one of New York’s most distinctive and recognizable buildings. The Chrysler Building is still a major landmark in midtown Manhattan despite being overshadowed by taller buildings. Originally built in 1930 as the headquarters of the Chrysler Corporation, it was the tallest building in the world for a few months, until the Empire State Building was completed. Today, it remains an Art Deco masterpiece and a reminder of a more romantic and glamorous age. Although the observation deck closed a long time ago, you can still admire the beautiful ground floor interior, with its murals of airplanes and other miracles of the age and take a ride in the lavish wood paneled elevators.
