It's not like the one in NY, but it's a levely and charming building. It has a little park in the back with a nice wall painted. That park is used in a lot of tv shows....like covert affairs!

Nice architecture, making for some nice pictures. Watch out for traffic as you try to find the best angle to get your picture. I took some pictures from the boulevard in between the lanes of traffic, so I could get a front view with part of the Toronto skyline in the background.

Good for some photographs, but that's all really. Set at a busy junction so be careful. There's a nice park nearby too.

Admire the architecture and snap a photo of this iconic building on your way to the St. Lawrence Market. Each side of the street provides a different perspective. Take your time to look around, but be careful of traffic. You can also see the Flatiron from the city sightseeing bus.

If you're after the perfect photo of Toronto then this may very well be it. With the CN Tower and tall office towers in the background, the Flatiron Building makes for an excellent photo of Toronto. It is a great glimpse into Toronto's past and in many ways is a better example of a flatiron building than some of its... More

Great building to have as a photo backdrop and good in early evening with sun setting. Put up before New York's so history too.

One of Toronto's iconic historic buildings. It's a British pub chain, but the décor is in keeping with the building and they serve a nice range of beers and food. A good homemade burger, fries and a pint cost less than twenty dollars. Staff friendly and helpful, and a nice seating outside for watching the world pass by.

Not too many cities can say they have a Flatiron building. This is indeed a unique architectural feat. Interesting corner to stand at and photograph, with the CN Tower and Office Towers in the background.

a really interesting and unique building in the heart of Toronto...I always loved looking at it. It's even weirder if you manage to get inside it.

I am originally from New York, so it has always bugged me that this is called "the Flatiron Building". The New York original was a major advance in construction and design, and a whole bigger than this place. Other than being similarly shaped, due to the convergence of two streets at an oblique angle, there is nothing in any way... More
