One of nicest skyscrapers

Not the biggest or highest skyscraper in New York but certainly one of the nicest. One of the buildings one has to see in New York.

Cracking architecture in New York is everywhere. The Flat Iron is one of the buildings that makes NYC special - well worth a look from the outside

A truly amazing, iconic building located on Fifth Avenue in NYC. I've only seen it up close in the afternoon when it is typically bathed in shadows but it is still very cool to see and photograph any time of day.

This building looked as impressive in reality as in photos and movies. Absolutely stunning, best to go there in the morning when the sun shines on its front, or you will get very dark photos.

A beautifully constructed building and a New York City staple. The surround area is lovely to walk around and photograph.

Just had to visit this building having read the reviews and not disappointed. An amazing building with fantastic design and credit to the artisans who created. So so much detail and the shape is unique.

We have a flat iron building in Toronto that is iconic and beautiful and has a copper clad cupola on the top, but the flat iron building in New York really must look like a flat iron when viewed from above.

Staying in Flatiron District

Neighborhood Profile
Flatiron District
Offering many of the city’s best restaurants and shops set amid classic New York architecture, the Flatiron District is no longer under the tourist radar. At 23rd Street is the famous triangular Flatiron Building, which makes a good picture no matter what angle you photograph it from. Be sure to look up at the elegant architecture as you stroll the streets - much of this neighborhood is part of a historic district that was home to many of the city’s most famous department stores at the turn of the century. At the northern end of the neighborhood, Madison Square Park is best known for being home to a famous burger shack, but it can also be a quiet refuge to spend an afternoon, and it frequently hosts interesting public art exhibits. In the lower part of the Flatiron District you'll find Union Square, a bustling crossroads at all times of day and night.
