This uniquely shaped and beautiful building sits right in front of (or behind - depends on where you stand :-) ) Madison Square Park. Great neighborhood and people watching while capturing the beauty of this structure. Must go to Eataly across the street for another unique experience.

Not the greatest of gems to seek out to see in Manhattan, but if you are passing by, why not? Point it and shoot.

The Flatiron Building is a must-see for those who love buildings. 22 stories at its completion in 1902, it was one of the tallest buildings in the city. Named for its resemblance to a clothing iron, the Flatiron is one of the most iconic sites in New York.

Tour bus guide continually tried to say that the building was the same length on each side. The building is really cool looking to see. Other than trying to prove him wrong, it was a neat building to see.

Some friends and I were on our way to a shoe sale( we're from Pennsylvania) We actually bumped up on the Flatiron building. It really stands out! My friend googled the address and it was interesting reading about this building that look like the old irons in the 1920s. Would have loved to see how it is situated inside. May... More

Very interesting building, depending on where you stand it can almost look flat! Great piece of architecture. I wouldn't go out of my way to visit it unless you are in the area.

I have to go and look at this building almost every day I visit this city. I'm obsesses with it. It's so beautiful, the lines, the sheer imagination and the way the sun bursts around it. Just go and see it.

I love this building and it's so photogenic. It sits in a great location too; right near hip foodie heaven Eaterly and the shopping street of Broadway. See the building, grab food to eat in or take away from Eaterly then hit the shops along Broadway with Empire State just behind you.

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.
