The Flatiron Building on Manhatten is one of the most iconic buildings in the city. Located on Broadway and Fifth Avenue it stand 21 storeys tall. It was originally called the Fuller Building but, you guessed it, because of its shape, locals started calling it the Flatiron Building. The name stuck, and now the whole area (i.e. Flatiron District) is named after this building.
The Flatiron Building is gorgeous, unique, eye-catching and captivating. It is not a tall building, but I was surprised by the detail the embelish the facade. As a bonus it is right across from a pretty park and a super small little market!! Really a great tourist spot – oh but look out for the traffic. Actually, always, everywhere in New York, look out for the traffic – those people drive like maniacs!!!
