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!

That is THE building to shoot while in Toronto. Nice building in the center of the city. A must see.

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.

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
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.
