Another New York legend. Flatiron Building, a beautiful piece of architecture. I could just sit and stare at it for hours I would like it even more. One of New York's 5 best buildings, do not miss that.

It's like no other building I've seen in the city- Unique, stands out and makes a person look twice. Side view pictures look weird, best to take the picture in the center across the street to get all sides - Glad I got a chance to see it in person.

I know it is some crazy architectural feat or whatever, but unless you are super into that sort of thing, it's really not that exciting.

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!
