I just wish they could raise the Chrysler building 400 or 500 feet.

if that is the case, the same should be done for the Empire State Building. However, increasing the height of either building would destroy the historical integrity.

I agree that the observation deck should be reopened.

Interesting! I looked around and found the information below on https://thetowerinfo.com/buildings-l...sler-building/ :

"When the Chrysler Building first opened, it used to have a public observation deck on the 71st floor at a height of 783 ft, but was closed and transferred to office space in 1945. The closing of the observation deck was because people preferred to visit the observation deck on Empire State Building, as it's higher and open-air, while in the enclosed observatory on Chrysler Building, visitors must see the views through small triangular windows."

It would be interesting to see how reopening the observation deck would play out.
