Outside on the observation deck, Mr Monkey first looked easterly towards Queens. He admired the shiny top of the Chrysler Building, and realised that he could see a little bit of Roosevelt Island under the Queensborough bridge. If the designers of the Chrysler building hadn't added their decorative top, reducing the height difference between the two towers to only 26 inches, the observation deck and tower wouldn't have been added to the ESB, and Mr Monkey wouldn't have been able to look down on the Chrysler building.
There's a page about the Chrysler Building at the City Review website.
