Chrysler Building Is For Sale
CHRYSLER BUILDING PUT UP FOR SALE
New York, NY (WPIX) – There’s a Chrysler for sale in New York; a really big one.
The Chrysler building, that is.
The art deco skyscraper’s stylized crown and triangle-shaped, vaulted windows have made it a key part of Manhattan’s skyline for nearly 90 years.
After its construction was complete in 1930, it was the world’s tallest building.
It held that title for roughly a year, until the Empire State building opened less than a mile away.
The Chrysler building has been owned by a real estate firm and an Abu Dhabi investment fund since 2008.
The plan to sell it was first reported by the Wall Street Journal.
