The 1920s in New York City was a time of growth with iconic buildings and architectural styles being constructed. The era was marked by the rise of skyscrapers such as the Chrysler Building and the Empire State Building, both of which exemplified the popular Art Deco style characterized by geometric shapes and bold colors. Gothic Revival architecture was also popular during this time, especially for religious and institutional buildings. These architectural styles continue to shape the city's skyline and cultural identity.
