Chrystler Building on a cracker

I was walking somewhere I'd not been in a long time and saw the Chrystler Building lit and graphic looking. There's a ramp on either side of Grand Central that essentially allows folks to drive through the mezzanine level of the train station via Park Avenue. From the south side you get an impressive view of Hermes as you approach.

Its official name is the Park Avenue Viaduct. There are entry ways and columns that are regal and stately like the architecture at 60 Center street, but they aren't in use. Definitely a worthwhile walk if you're o.k. with maneuvering directly in traffic.
