It is nice. Just to take a photo and move on. The back of the building has a nice cover. It is not comparable to the flat iron of New York.

This is a truly unique building and a neat thing to see in passing from one place to another. It is similar to the famous New York City Flatiron Building, but on a much smaller scale. Don't expect to be "wowed." But for those of you that enjoy seeing slices of history and unique architecture in a modern city, it... More

Once you have seen it you have seen it. Nice to take a photo and then move on. Quirky building adds some character to the area

Well it's a building on a street but I just don't get it. Would not recommend it as seemed rather dull and uninspiring, as compared to the many other buildings I've visited.

Said to be built by Distiller George Gooderham at the end of the 19th century, this red brick building really stood out amongst its neighbours in downtown Toronto. The building is narrow at one end facing a road intersection and then wide at the rear backing onto the petit Berczy Park. At the wider end, there is a multi-storey high... More

The Flatiron Building is a beautiful building that we visited during my recent trip to Toronto. With it's distinctly curious shape (wider in back than in the front), it is a lovely red brick structure with a beautiful green roof. Recommended!

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!

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with a strong student influence from the Ryerson University Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities, with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
