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.

Love it.
