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
