This was a building on my hit list to photograph. We walked down broadway from the Macy's direction and the building is gorgeous. There's an area opposite that you can get photos from in between buses dashing past. If you get a bus tour past it I suggest focusing as soon as you see it. The casting in the concrete... More

This building is relatively small when compared to many in Manhattan and it is easily missed unless you really want to see it and do some research before you get there. An amazing shaped structure which was designed to fit a limited parcel of land at the time and which lead to its fairly iconic name, the flatiron building. It... More

The building is very unusual and nice, when you look at it, you don't feel scared. Interesting shape really reminds an iron. Apart of the building it is a good area for walking in the nearby park and just sitting on the bench or going to the movie thater for "Sex and the city 2".

A great example of New York architecture! A must see, the history of the building is also really interesting! Definitely one of the most iconic skyscrapers in NY!

I loved seeing this wonderful building. It made me feel like I was back in time and the architecture is stunning! The environment of the shops and food around the building is another reason to absolutely love the area. Must see in Manhattan.

Cool architecture, view must be unreal from those offices on the "point". This building is worth the time to check out.

This is another iconic New York building you just have to visit. There isn't much else to see or do other than the building itself but that really is enough. Just stand, stare enjoy and maybe take a selfie with a classic building.

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
