With its graceful Art Deco spire and mighty eagle hood ornaments, the Chrysler Building has long outshone the taller Empire State Building in aesthetic allure. Designed by William Van Alen and nearing completion in 1930, the Chrysler stood neck-and-neck with its rival, the Manhattan Company Building, for tallest in the world.
