The Flatiron Building is a New York landmark. When it was completed in 1902, it was the tallest building in the world, and remained so until 1909. It was New York's first iron-frame high-rise, constructed in the Beaux Arts style. This unusual building makes for a great photo opportunity, so if you're in the area, don't miss it. It currently...

This is a highlight of the city. Amazing building which you can walk around and admire from every angle. The district is lovely with the amazing City cafe and bakery within a few minutes walk. There are some great shops and the whole area has a really nice feel.

Since this flatiron building was not too far from our hotel, we passed it many times. It is very much a photogenic building. There is always a great, unique perspective from which to take its picture.

One of the must see buildings in New York. Walked down 5th Avenue after visiting the Empire State, took some pictures from various angles and then walked back up to Macy's.

Beautiful architecture. Like nothing else in New York. Come check it out, take a few photos. Few restaurants and shops around but not a great deal else. Only a short walk to Empire State or Times Square. Put it on the list.

Of course in NYC you really need to see the Flat Iron Building in the Flatiron District, but really beyond seeing the building and the artwork displayed in the front of the building there really isn't much to do with the building. Shopping and restaurants nearby are good so that is a big plus! If you are not into architecture,... More

Definitely worth a photograph or 2, but don't go out your way for it. It is located on Broadway and 22nd - you cant miss it.

Just admire this New York City landmark. Go down Broadway and it will appear in front of you for a great photo opportunity.

Of all the amazing things that I have seen while visiting New York City, I have to admit that one of my favorite is the Flatiron Building. I just loved it! It's Avant Garde architecture, it's location, the beautiful cast iron lamps lining the streets, the small park right at it's base. It is for sure one of the first... More

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.
