Manhattan's Flatiron District takes its name from this building. Known originally as the Fuller Building, its distinctive wedge shape, reminiscent of an old cast-iron clothes iron, led to its current name.

But you will be for sure, you will eat something in EATALY which is right nearby! The Flatiron is an interesting architectural landmark. Our tour guide have told us that the aerodynamics of the building and the street does wonders to the summer dresses of the ladies, and the romantic young men of the 1920s were frequenting the area waiting...

So little land. So much building. Visit it on your walking tour of New York. Learn it's history and enjoy the view.

Come on, how often can you see a building like this? It is on 5th Avenue, so you are obviously going to take a walk over there. I suggest going there after walking on the High Line and Chelsea Neighborhood, it is pretty close! Enjoy it and take photos!

We spend a morning walking up to Union square to visit the market which is there several days a week. On the way we passed the iconic Flatiron building. We did not going but did spend some time photographing it from all angles.

Near Penn Station and easy to work into most tourist routes. Attractive building and area. We have never been inside.

It's a wonderful building - there's something about it which seems to transport you to a time past. Its distinctive shape and the gold clock sitting in Madison Square at the intersection of Broadway and 5th at 23rd are a magnet for photographers. The Park Row building (391ft) was already completed in 1899 when the Flatiron (285ft) arrived in 1902.

Walked to the Flatiron building from Times square- took me about 25 minutes. The Empire state building is close by, so you can watch two "must see" buildings at the same time.

You know that you are approaching the Village when you see the flatiron building heading south. Yes, south so you can get the distinctive view like perspective in a painting. Go to Madison square nearby and come for food trucks in good weather. Interesting specialty shops like paper goods nearby.

I love the Flatiron building. The original skyscraper and the tallest in NY when first built. Stunning to look at and amazing architecture. So unusual. Worth a visit for a look/see.

Thank Vazbo

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.
