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

It's the landmark triangular building at the crossing of Broadway and 5th Avenue, near the Madison Park. It's beautiful structure to take picture . If you visit Newyork definitely must see this building.

This is a real architectural gem in the city and is many ways quite iconic and is certainly worth a look at at any time of the day.

What is it about this building? Is it its shape, or its street position, or it’s relatively small size, or it’s architecture or is it because it’s featured in so many movies/TV shows. Probably a combination of all the above reasons. We had to come...More

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

The building comprises of shops - lower floor and office upper floors so unless you ar going on business or find a friendly business owner highly unlikely - but still the best views are on the outside.

Eating in Manhatten ? - but not in restaurants. (25 Replies)
I was recently in Honolulu - and, although there were many restaurants there, I found them to be not what I wanted. What I did want and find was a large "food hall" in a hotel shopping arcade, selling all kinds of food from Mexican to Asian. Cheap, quick and quite good food. I have Googled "food halls" in Manhatten but can't really find anything similar - will be staying near the Flatiron Building . Any thoughts please for casual non-restaurant eating while in New York??

Eataly is right by the Flat iron. The Pennsy in Penn Station. There's one in the Row NYC hotel. Chelsea Market, which is a hall not a market. There's one at 43rd and 10th or 11th. It's actually a hip trend right now.

Day 3 - Monday December 3rd Headed out for breakfast to our usual place (John’s at 2nd Ave & 44th St) where it was the usual fast, friendly and efficient service - a great start to the day! We then started quite a long walk to Union Square. We walked down 2nd Avenue until we reached 14th Street. During the walk we passed a crèche for dogs - we’ve never seen this before and it was SO cute! We could see all the dog s playing together - it was so sweet. We also saw a bus go by -...More

The fun continues. OK, when you mentioned a "creche" with dogs, what came to mind was my definition of "creche", which is typically an installation portraying Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, the Three Kings, etc. So I pictured someone creating such an installation, but with dog statues instead of human ones. But when you said "it was fun to watch the dogs play together" I kinda freaked - these were LIVE dogs portraying the biblical characters?!?!? My GOD I've got to see this. Then I looked...More

To see how long it takes to drive from Groton, CT to NYC, put your destinations into Google Maps (e.g., "Groton, CT to New York City"). It will give you directions and an estimated time of travel. As far as your list of things to do in NYC, it depends on what you enjoy doing. First off, how many days to you plan on staying in NYC? Second, you may want to repost your question in the New York City forum (you are currently in the general forum for New York State) where you will likely get...More
