Modern Marvels: The Chrysler Building

For one year, it was the tallest building in the world. Although surpassed by the Empire State building in 1931, the Chrysler Building continues to inspire awe and wonder into the twenty-first century.

Funded by the automotive tycoon Walter P. Chrysler, the 1,045-foot-tall building that bears his name is universally recognized as one of the finest storied "Cloud Club," Modern Marvels leads an extraordinary, all-access tour of this Manhattan landmark. Extensive photos and rare footage document the building's construction, while experts detail the deception that allowed Chrysler to claim the much-sought-after title of "world's tallest building." Finally, find out why the architect of this iconic tower, William van Alen, never again designed another skyscraper.

Join The History Channel to witness the style and exuberance of one of the most important buildings to ever grace the New York City skyline.
