Description
Architect: Sloan and Robertson
Developer: Irving S. Chanin

Having been surpassed in height by a number of buildings, most notably the Chrysler Building located across the street, the observatory on the 54th floor has long been closed.

The building had a 200 seat theater on the 50th and 51st floors used by tenants.

Named after Irwin Chanin, a big time New York developer in the 1920s.
