Flatiron Building – New York

Here are a few shots of the Flatiron building which, alongside the Chrysler building, is one of my two favourite buildings In New York city.  Built in 1902 and 22 storeys high, the Flatiron was once the tallest skyscraper in New York.  Although dwarfed by modern skyscrapers, the Flatiron is architecturally stunning.

The Chrysler Building – New York

Here are a few shots of the 77-storey Chrysler building which is currently New York’s 9th tallest skyscraper and without doubt one of its most impressive.   The building  is a classic example of Art Deco style architecture – the outside of the 61st floor is graced with eagles and the 31st floor adorned with replicas of 1929 Chrysler radiator caps.
