Came across it by accident but had heard of it. We were walking from ground zero back to 8th avenue via Broadway when we came across it. Very well designed building and we'll worth a photo opportunity. Busy area with lots of buzz.

I know it's a building, but it's just as iconic and important as Brooklyn Bridge or Tomes Square. Worth a photo and across the road from eataly, so make this a must see!

This building was one of the first of New York's skyscrapers but it was never quite the tallest building when finished in 1903. It was known for its unique architecture, occupying the triangular block between the intersection of Broadway and Fifth avenue at 23rd Street. The wind currents accentuated by its acute angle were said to be the strongest in... More

The Flatiron Building at 23rd st. and 5th avenue hearkens back to a bygone era at the turn of the twentieth century. In 1902, New York City was once again asserting itself as a spearhead for the rest of the country. By changing their architectural code, New York City buildings could be constructed with steel skeletons. Twenty two stories and... More

Every time we visit New York we have a close look at this fascinating building which is an architectural Icon from 1902 and one of the first Skyscrapers in New York. We love the triangular shape of it.

Yes, looks just like the famous picture. Recently cleaned and the detail is worth a look, but nothing to see inside. Much better after you read Jack Finney book Time and Again about time travel to 1900's New York, which involves this building and the old photos. Seriously.

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.
