    Flat Iron
    Flat Iron is for me the most beautiful building I have seen. You really think, when you see it from a special perspective, it is really flat all in all.

    A strange triangular structure, but this is the first high-rising building that was built in NY. A humble start...

    It's really a weird building talking bout the shape. It's not even the tallest building of NYC (76 meters) but one of the most famous ones, built in 1902.

    One of New York's oldest skyscrapers, the Flatiron Building was built in 1902.

    It is named after it's unusual shape. The triangle points sharply uptown.

    Don't forget to have a look at the Flatiron Building. It's steps away from the Empire State Building. All within walking distance.

    A triangle made by 5th Avenue, Broaway and 23rd Street is the site of Flatiron Building, named for its unusual shape. When it was built in 1903, it was the world’s tallest building.
