Erected in 1902, Flatiron Building takes its name from its resemblance to a cast-iron clothing iron and was built to fill a small wedge-shaped piece of land. Designed by Daniel Burnham, the building epitomizes the Chicago School design, which makes it distinct from the other skyscrapers in the area. Upon completion, the building was one of the tallest in the city, measuring 87 m (285 ft) in height. The building no longer carries that designation, however, it remains one of the city's iconic examples of architecture. With our custom trip planner, New York City attractions like Flatiron Building can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

Where to stay in New York City

The first step to finding accommodations in New York City is finding the right neighborhood. Manhattan, where most visitors end up, offers some of the most expensive rooms in the world, though there are lower-budget options, such as hostels with shared restrooms. Reduce your costs by basing yourself in one of the outer boroughs, but beware of low-end motels where you may end up sharing the premises with hourly customers. Alternatively, stay along the New Jersey shore, offering all the major chain hotels at considerably lower prices than their Manhattan equivalents.

  • Hard to get here by subway. If you're staying near Times Square, it's easier to walk. Worth it place to visit! There's a gelato place near the building and lots of restaurants down below. Must visit i...  more »
  • Don't go too far out of your way for this attraction, but it is a fun photo op! It's a building that most people will recognize!  more »
  • Long fascinated by this oddball, it was a treat to see it first by bus tour, then to return on foot and capture an image of its sharp 'nose' from the base of the building. The unique building is testi...  more »

  • Great outdoor space. There are food vendors everywhere so grab some food and have a seat while people watching. What I love about this place is that its in the center of the street, so you can watch people everywhere. Great way to experience NYC
  • What's not to love about this quirky, iconic landmark? It is beautiful and historic. Located directly across from Madison Square Park, and featuring tables and chairs outside it's angled walls, it's worth a visit. Bring your camera!
  • Wow... its a living breathing Icon. Perhaps the subject of more photographs than the Statue of Liberty. Well, maybe not Lady Liberty. But those cameras keep on clicking. There is a pleasant little Park across the street, known as Madison Square Park. The Shake Shack located in the park is a good place to grab a quick burger and malt.
  • The first sky scraper in New York... and well worth a look. Use the public space in front of the building get a sandwich from Eisenberg Sandwich and enjoy the view. Turn 180 degrees and enjoy the classic view of the Empire State Building... perfect morning in New York BTW the sandwich makes it!
  • This place is iconic. It is one of the most photographed building in NYC. The location is perfect being so close to Madison Square Park. It's nice in the summer months to simply grab a seat and some gelato from little eately across the street! Enjoy the scenery and take in the sites at this iconic place. Easily accessible from union square, path trains, and pretty much all metro trains!
