Just saw it once, but it is very cool. Why don't they do architecture like this anymore? Wish I would have touched it.

We have seen it in movies a lot of times, now we have seen it for real. Pretty good idea to let it completely follow the streets.

It's worth making your way to see this impressive building that seems so familiar from TV and the movies. The shape is unique and worth seeing up close and personal. You won't need to be stay for long, but it’s worth coming for. Be sure to take a photo or two before you explore the many other great things in... More

Cool building. Pitty it is one of the top 10 most interesting buildings in NCY, on most of the postcards and souvenirs, but not lit in the evening/night. Great view to the Empire State Building and free WiFi in between.

As am I, you will enjoy it. Every time I travel to NYC I can't help it to stare at buildings. But I mean, I know people who live in NYC don't stop to look, I just don't get it. SO much to see and admire.

Although we did not go inside of the Flatiron Building, this was one of the "sky-scrapers" which I had researched prior to our trip and that I at least wanted to see up-close and in person. The design looked even more odd, yet historically and architecturally very neat to see and photograph in person!

An unusual sight, but worth mentioning, though I could not go inside , it was an amazing sight even from the vehicle we were travelling, worth seeing it due to its unusual shape.

Well, it just looks like all the pictures you've seen of it. Just a building but I absolutely had to have my own pic ! The area is really nice so enjoy a nice stroll around while you're at it :-)

Yes, we have all seen countless photos of this iconic building...but you have to take your own! A tip...like us, get the photo that includes the listed clock tower in the foreground.
