The Flatiron Building is a 285-foot-tall steel-framed landmark building and it is one of New York City’s first and oldest surviving skyscrapers. With its unusually narrow structure, it is a popular landmark in the New York City landscape.
Completed in 1902, it is an iconic triangular-shaped skyscraper known for its pioneering steel-frame construction and Beaux-Arts architectural style.
It’s one of the most recognized and photographed buildings in New York City and represents the transition from the city’s older low-rise buildings to its modern skyscrapers.
Designated a New York City landmark in 1966 and has been a symbol of the city for over a century
