Unfortunately you aren't able to go in, but you can work many angles out with your camera. It is unique, however there is similar buildings - I saw one in Brooklyn. The park nearby is worth a look whilst you're in the area with some sculptures. I was still looking forward to seeing this even though you couldn't see much,... More

Visited here today. Usual busyness of new York, but not overly crowded. There are subways, restaurants and cafes all in close proximity.

I find myself here again. Lots to do in this neighborhood. The Flatiron Building presides over the district to remind all of our distinct heritage.

Loved viewing and taking photos of the building. New York has some of the most interesting buildings, architecturally speaking. Busy area but not as busy as others.

The Flatiron building, New York's original 22 story skyscraper is the one that set it all off. As seen in the Spider-man movies and plenty of other movies and TV shows the unique building is certainly one to visit when you are in the area as there is no other like it, a true architectural wonder. Maybe grab some food... More

Wow, this historic 22 story building is really great to look at. Shaped like a flat iron, it has limestone on the lower floors, then terra cotta and lots of sculpture on the outside. You can see it clearly from the nearby Madison Square park. it really is majestic.

Inspired by the Spider-man films, it is a delight to come to NY to marvel at this architecture masterpiece, with no other building like it the area or world for example, speaks volumes about the place of its beauty compared to the surrounding buildings

This building was built in 1902. At that time, it was one of the tallest buildings in New York City. It is located in the middle of the so-called "Flatiron District" surrounded by a lot of interesting buildings, restaurants and shops. It was added as a New York landmark in 1966, added in the National Registry in 1979 and then... 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.
