This is quite possibly my favorite building in the city. Yes, yes, I know I’m not terribly original with that opinion. Maybe because it ever-so-slightly recalls memories of watching “Annie.” If not the first ever movie I saw on the silver screen, it was darn near close. And that’s a pretty cool thing to remember.
I don’t get to see the Chrysler Building every day since my life is exists below 14th Street. But tonight I found myself in midtown after work so I opted to stroll for a while and take in the vertical view. It’s nice to step back and romanticize the city once in a while, to get out of your routine, away from the same ol’ sights and figurative brick walls. Even if it’s only to be reminded that the whole city shines like the top of the Chrysler Building. And that’s a pretty cool thing to remember.
