Flatiron Building

23rd Street bet.5th Ave. & Broadway
This uniquely designed 22-story triangular-shaped building was the tallest building in the world and first steel building in the world when it was constructed in 1902. At that time, New York City’s shopping district ran from 14th street to 23rd street, precisely where the Flatiron was built. One can imagine the exposure that the building and its architect received.
