Great building, not to far from other attractions think it took me about 30 mins to get to it from East 31st street where I was staying. Its worth a view and some pics, roads are busy round it and it was raining when I went, took me back to the opening scenes out of I am Legend. Very odd... More

The Flat Iron building, and neighborhood in general, are a great place to spend part of a day while in NYC. The building is very interesting and beautiful and the adjacent Madison Square and closely located Union Square are amazing places to take in this area. There are tons of great restaurants and shopping in the general area and it... More

If you are in NYC and want to see one of the cities great landmarks then of course it makes sense to visit the Flatiron Building. However, don't expect to find much more that you see on the front of every guide book - it's just a great looking unique building.

There are free walking tours of the Flatiron District on Sundays. Get information, as well as a guide for a self-guided tour, at flatirondistrict.nyc. I used the guide to find places where Herman Melville and O’Henry lived. I also used the shopping guide on the site and found two shops I absolutely loved: Abracadabra NYC, 19 W 21st St, is... More

I can't describe it, just the same thing all the people said: its beautiful. But is strange, weird, maybe creepy; its... More

Always a great sight to see this building, whether you are into spotting movie locations (Spiderman, where Peter Parker worked) or just to ask why anyone would want to design a building in the shape of a slice of pie, one of those sights you must see really....awsome structure

This building is quite unique and interesting to see. It's not like you can tour it but wouldn't that be fun to see the pie-shaped offices. There is a park nearby (Madison Square Perk) where you can sit and enjoy the view. It's one of those places that people like to see from the outside and get a picture of... More
