For Debbie’s ‘One Word Sunday-Point’, I’ve chosen this image of the iconic Chrysler Building designed by William Van Alen, with its beautiful spire pointing straight up into the clear blue sky over Manhattan. Construction was started in 1928 and completed in 1930 and its Art Deco style has made it one of the most famous buildings in New York. The interior structure is made of steel and Van Alen’s ‘big surprise’ which was kept from the media and the public, was the secretly built 185 ft spire which only at the very last moment and to everyone’s amazement, was hoisted through the roof and bolted into place, making it at 1046 ft the world’s tallest building. The following year, its height was surpassed by the Empire State Building, but today it is still the tallest brick-built skyscraper in the world.
