Flatiron Building, New York City

4.5
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.

  • A pretty amazing sight - this an unique building! even if it's not the first time I see it with my own eyes, I still love contemplating the architecture of the entire Downtown Manhattan !! The best way to enjoy these views: the classical walk, regardless of the weather !
  • The building is indeed a sight to see... Not only the design but the huge size is also amazing..also the ancient look the building has makes it a historic place to visit but its amazing to see the shops inside selling modern hi-tech gadgets
  • Featured in so many movies and TV shows, this was a must see while in New York. A cool park with tables makes for a great place to rest and take in the scenery.
  • Stop & look up once in a while. Enjoy the scenery, especially during the summer months. Take a stroll through the park. Plenty of districts to go shopping.
  • Really nice place. Awesome view.. construction mind-blowing. Must visit

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.
