New York City’s Flatiron Building In Manhattan

Located on Fifth Avenue between 22nd and 23rd streets, the Flatiron Building is one of New York City’s famous landmarks and one the most unique architectures in Manhattan. Shaped like an iron, the apex of the building is just six feet wide, and expands into a limestone wedge adorned with Gothic and Renaissance details of Greek faces and terra cotta flowers. Built in 1902 by designer Daniel H. Burnhamt, this 22 story building was one of the first in the city to employ a steel frame to hold up its 285-foot tall facade. Beautiful!
