Flatiron district is a bustling part of New York City and the highlight of the district, is the namesake building. The Flatiron Building is unique and makes for a rare sight. It is located in a heavily trafficked neighborhood with a number of restaurants, shops and Madison Square Park. Unfortunately during our visit, a portion of the building was covered in scaffolding, but the building still looked magnificent. It isn't nearly as tall as a number of other skyscrapers, but what it lacks in height, it makes up for in shape.
I wouldn't recommend going to the area just to see the building alone (there are a number of tourist attractions and eateries nearby), but if in the area, this is definitely worth a stop. The well-known Eataly is located opposite the Flatiron Building. Madison Square Park adjacent to the Flatiron Building is a great place to sit and take in some excellent views of the building!
