Art Deco is found at 42nd street and Lexington Avenue.

This is the Chrysler building in the lower east side of midtown Manhattan in New York City.
It is an Art Deco inspired architectural structure that was finished in 1930 during the Early Modern and Art Deco movements.  I initially received a postcard from my sister when she visited New York City in the early 2000's. Reading about the movement this week reminded me of this postcard. The designs for the building were created by William Van Allen for Walter P Chrysler. The spire has a very strong Art Deco inspiration that was popular around the mid 20's to the late 30's.
