A reader, Jo ( asked for some Art Deco pics. Quick to oblige, today I headed over to the Chrysler Building. I had some things to do and figured I’d get a few nice pictures and be off. But was I ever wrong. I’m gonna have to go back. There’s way too much building. So many amazing angles. The lobby is spectacular.


Hope you like these photos of The New York Life Insurance Company. The architect is Cass Gilbert who also designed the Woolworth Building. Built in 1928, the NY Life Building is in the Gothic Revival style.
