Margaret Bourke-White is seen in this iconic photograph capturing images of New York City from atop the Chrysler Building, which she had been hired to document through every phase of its construction. The Chrysler Building was the world's tallest structure for eleven months after its completion and was emblematic of the Jazz Age and the growth of Art Deco architecture in New York City. Bourke-White was a pioneer as a female photographer and became well known for her photos taken in the Soviet Union of Joseph Stalin. Bourke-White had a studio at the top of the building and would go on to say:
'On the sixty-first floor, the workmen started building some curious structures which overhung 42nd Street and Lexington Avenue below. When I learned these were to be gargoyles à la Notre Dame, but made of stainless steel as more suitable for the twentieth century, I decided that here would be my new studio. There was no place in the world that I would accept as a substitute.'
The Chrysler Building was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1976 and remains one of the most recognizable buildings in New York City. Bourke-White is seen here taking photos from the eagle structures on the 61st floor in a photo taken by Oscar Graubner. This is an authentic piece of American history that links the viewer to the past and illustrates the evolution and development of the New York City skyline during one of the most transformative eras before World War II.
