The building is very unique. A beautiful example of architecture. This is a wonderful building for photos. There are many great weekend food festivals in front of the flat iron. Great food and view.

This was such a great building to see really glad I went to see it, the New Yorkers know so much about their city and the history of all their buildings, so it was even more amazing hearing the history behind this amazing building.

I have always been fascinated by this building and it was on my must see list. It was interesting to learn some of the history of the building from the locals.

Build in 1902 this was with its 21 floors this once one of the tallest buildings in Manhattan. As you can guess it gets its name from the shape that reminds of a flatiron and due to that it is probably one of the most photographed buildings of the world.

What an iconic building, we sat in the little square in front of it with a cold drink and watched the world go by, a must see when you visit NYC

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.
