Bit o' non-archaeology
I'm watching a show on the Chrysler Building right now.
I love this building even if I've never seen it in person. I'm a huge fan of art deco and this kind of is he epitome of that style. I suppose a lot of people wold think it too ornate and prefer the relative simplicity of the Empire State, but I think this one balances form and function perfectly. Everything draws your eyes up and up, but you still want to linger and enjoy the details on the way up, too.
