We were staying just beside the Flatiron in an airbnb apartment and I have to say it was a beautiful sight to behold at the end of a long day walking around the city. From the Empire State, it is so clearly visible because of its distinctive shape, design and colour. It's hard to believe it was New York's first... More

The Flatiron building, by itself, is worth seeing as a rather off building--shaped remarkably like a huge triangular flatiron--so it would fit the space available--in the midst of New York's soaring skyscrapers. Perhaps it's unique shape qualifies it as a "must-see" attraction in New York. Not for me. For me it is worth seeing for quite a different reason: When... More

Great to see the building up close, but you have to wonder how and why it was ever allowed to become a reality, iconic New York landmark.

Another New York legend. Flatiron Building, a beautiful piece of architecture. I could just sit and stare at it for hours I would like it even more. One of New York's 5 best buildings, do not miss that.

It's like no other building I've seen in the city- Unique, stands out and makes a person look twice. Side view pictures look weird, best to take the picture in the center across the street to get all sides - Glad I got a chance to see it in person.
