Flatiron Closeup


Flatiron Closeup, originally uploaded by ShellyS.

Have I mentioned this is my favorite building? I love the shape. Now, there are other buildings in NYC with the same shape, but the Flatiron anchors a neighborhood, situated as it is at the intersection of Broadway and Fifth Avenue at 23rd Street, dividing east and west (Fifth Ave is the line of demarcation), just southwest of Madison Square Park.

The facade is wonderful, and this face is just lovely.
