I don't know if we can enter, but it's worth taking the bus around it, it's so different from anything else!

The Flatiron is an iconic New York building and perhaps one of the most photographed and painted buildings too. The building sits on a triangular block formed by Fifth Avenue, Broadway, and East 22nd Street, with 23rd Street grazing the triangle's northern (uptown) peak. As with numerous other wedge-shaped buildings, the name "Flatiron" derives from its resemblance to a cast-iron... More

Yet another iconic attraction in the heart of Manhattan. Full of historic relevance and quite simply a really funny shaped building that looks very old - if you're near the Empire State Building just pop on down the road for a look at it - for me quite a wonderful edifice.

Iconic building that no visitor to NYC should fail to see, if only for its unique appearance. Provides great photo opportunities from street level.

Sunny day for a walk down 5th Avenue to Flatiron district. Very New York without the crowds. Love seeing the dog park and how the natives enjoy their neighborhood park on 5th avenue. Amazing Architecture abound. We walked from 20th to NYPL.

The neighborhood the Flatiron Bldg is in is so vibrant! Lots of bustle, restaurants, businesses, classes, etc. ALL types of people. Sit in the outdoor dining & food truck area in the middle of the street and sip an iced coffee and people watch! The area is central to many things!

Staying in Flatiron District

Neighbourhood Profile
Flatiron District
Offering many of 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 neighbourhood, Madison Square Park is best known for being the home of 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.
