The building's triangular shape was a clever response to the awkward site produced by the intersection of Broadway and 5th Avenue. The building was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1979. We passed this building on tour bus, and was amazed by the grandeur of the architcture. The district around has some awesome designer shops, and large... More

Beautiful building with great architecture, the area around it is great for light shopping and grabbing a drink and people watching. Worth a visit while passing through.

If visiting the strand bookstore (about 10 - 15 min walk down) the museum of sex (also nearby) or one of the nearby restaurants Hill Country or Grametcy Tavern. Oh heck it's an iconic NYC landmark find a way to squeeze it in.

As I have a large black and white picture of the flatiron building on our dining room wall, it was a must to get our picture taken infront of the building. Right outside 23rd street subway, if memory serves me correctly.

It is still quite difficult to get a good photo of it though. The best ones seem to be taken from above it looking down on to it. Worth walking to it from the Empire State and remembering that it was built in 1902 so it was quite a feat of engineering back then. It also used to be one... More

I really like the Flatiron Building but that is it. It really is just a nice thing to look at. If you are already close by it is worth a detour but don't expect too much. It is just another building in Manhattan after all.

..because it is something I have never seen before. But dont expect any museum inside. Just take a photo and continue your trip. There is a snack shop right in front of it with free sitting and right next to it there is a park with a dog area also.

I love architecture and this building is yet another example of the spectacular buildings in New York. The form of the building is just beautiful and the skill of those who designed and built it is obvious.

The building itself is very famous and no wonder why. Many Hollywood blockbuster used this iconic building. Architecturally is interesting, but nothing else. Liked the fact it offered free WiFi, which is very rear in NYC, so went back few times just for the internet. Nice restaurants are close by.
