Not much to say, a real NY landmark you need to see if you can. The Madison Sq park next to is nice when it is hot and sunny. They held a free concert in the park while i was there in Sept. Very nice free experience.

This is one of the most iconic New York Sites, an odd shaped building built on the junction of two avenues giving it it's wedge shape appearance, If you can remember Flat Irons you will see where the name comes from

Cool to see, but other than looking at it there's really nothing more to do. Very easy to get pictures of the whole building from different street corners. Close proximity to Madison Square park.

Probably not a 'must see' for everyone (in fact a lot of people at home didn't know what I meant when I said I wanted to see 'The Flat Iron Building'....but they did when I showed them a picture) but I like the architecture and made sure I visited it....for probably the same reason I went into Tiffany's. Eataly was... More

Cool iconic building in the midst of typical glass and concrete monoliths. It's nice to see the preservation of beautiful architecture rather than taking them down. Cool building in a cool neighbourhood.

The Flatiron Building is a New York City landmark you've probably seen in many photos and pictures. It is interesting to see it in person, appreciate its triangular shape and get the feel for the place and its history. As far as I know, it can only be seen from the outside.

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.
