The building that always makes visitors smile! Take the N or R trains to East 23rd station and you are there. Madison Square Park is just across the street, and there are sit-down restaurants nearby. My favourite thing to do is to join the line at Shake Shack and then eat in the Park and simply enjoy the view. Non-tenants... More

Before our trip to NYC our family did a lot of reading and brushing up on history of NYC, and enjoyed learning about this incredible building. Finished in 1902, it still takes our breath away as much as the brand new Freedom Tower One World Trade.

So, one of my friends is an architect, and she's the one who told me about the significance of the structure, which made me appreciate it. It's across from a nice park, so make sure to sit and relax over there while you gawk at the building!

A favorite in NY. Really impressive turn of the 19th century architecture that is iconic. It was one of the first skyscrapers in NY and it's true to its heritage.... the metal structure is clearly imaginable and it's marvelous to think about the building materials available in 1902. And the architectural feat they they pulled off way back when. The... More

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.
