Fakten

  • Originally clad in white brick, the uniform window openings on the slab-form tower changed into continuous vertical striping for the top floors.
  • In May 2001, the Chrysler Trylons, a Philip Johnson-designed pyramidal extravaganza of blue-grey glass was completed between the two Chrysler Buildings.
  • The 32-storey building rises set-back from a block-wide base with a ground floor of black granite.
  • Announced in 1949, the building was, imaginatively, called the Chrysler Building East. Despite having its main entrance on Third Avenue side, the address was given as a 42nd Street one -- due to the then-seedier nature of the avenue. With the demolition of the disturbing Third Ave. Elevated Railway in 1956 -- which started a general development boom on the avenue -- the address was accordingly changed to 666 Third Avenue.
  • The Kent Building or Credit Agricole Indosuez Building was completed in 1952 to the eastern blockfront of the block better known as the location for the Chrysler Building.
  • After the Tishman Speyer Properties bought both the buildings, as well as the intervening low-rises, in 1998, Philip Johnson was brought in to renovate the East Building, as it was to be called. Not only was the building clad in a dark blue curtain wall, but the interior arrangement was also changed radically.
  • The new Chrysler Center incorporates all the buildings on the southern blockfront facing 42nd Street,with a new Johnson-designed lobby connecting the structures.
