A crazy looking and odd building that is triangular at the front and flat at the back, who would build such a thing, as the shape seems completely useless? The building stands out from the other buildings in the area due to not only its shape but also the decorate effect.

Get a shake shack burger in Madison square park, sit down, enjoy the sunshine and watch! This is the perfect lunch break for me.

Union Square and the Flatiron Building are so fascinating! We really enjoyed the area with the garment district tour, Nordstrom Rack store, Eataly and the views of this iconic building. The stories of men watching women's billowing skirts by the wind effect on the side of the building were great!

Caught a view of this building as part of a bus tour. Impressive architecture, the tour guide said this was used as the Daily Bugle building in Spiderman. Very surprised after Hurricane Sandy that the building is still up due to its relative thinness, it doesn't look solid enough to withstand the forces side on. Still worth seeing though.

I wanted to check out this iconic building. Managed to find it in he first try and wasn't disappointed. It is a really interesting building and it makes me wonder what the apartments look like inside! There is a small park nearby that you can sit and watch the people go by. Grab a cup of coffee and check it... More

I missed it the first time I went to NYC, but I had to see it the second time. And it's really interesting. I still wonder how those appartments look like from inside. You shouldn't miss it on your way to Greenwich Village.

This is one of the more unusual buildings that I have been to. I'm somewhat of a science fiction buff, so it was great to see where Tor/Forge books was actually headquartered. I had heard that the curvature of the building results in peculiar wind conditions, and even in the heat of the summer I found that it was true;... More
