Owner description: This Daniel Burnham design got its moniker because, as you might guess, it resembles an iron.

“Neat to see”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

It is neat to see but nothing much more for me. We walked to it so we could eat at the Shake Shack, but only walked by the building. It is one of many flatiron buildings in the city, but this is definitely the most ornate and the prettiest.

“A beautifully designed building”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

Not as imposing as the Empire State or Chrysler buildings but in many ways is more interesting. A beautifully designed building that demands your interest and respect.

“Great Outdoor Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

I love the way this building is oriented in the street, looking towards the Empire State Building. There is seating and umbrellas that are sitting below the building where you can take your lunch or meal and enjoy it near the park as well. Lots of hustle and bustle in this area - upbeat and surrounding eateries and things to do.

“Great unique building”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

A lovely piece of architecture. Lovely detailing of this building and the shape is quite unique.A must to see when visiting NY and then stop at the Shack Shack for a burger as Anthony Bourdain mentions in "the layover 24 hrs in NY"

“Nice to see in person.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

I'd seen the Flatiron Building in pictures so many times. I had to go see it for myself.

Just one of many beautifully sculptured buildings in NYC.

You can see perfectly from Madison Square Park across the street. A great place to people watch, and if your in the mood, you can wait in the .25 mile long line for a shake from Shake Shack.
