After the destruction of the WTC towers – New York World Trade Centre – it became the second-tallest building in New York City. It is level with The New York Times Building by Italian architects office Renzo Piano Building Workshop.

The Chrysler Building was refurbished 1995.

It is the tallest brick building in the world.
