Flatiron Building

175 5th Ave
Manhattan, NY

Flatiron District


Just south of Madison Square Park is a famously triangular Renaissance palazzo, the Flatiron Building. The 22-story edifice is clad in white terracotta: its light color was revealed again by cleaning and restoration in the early 1990s. The surrounding neighborhood was christened in honor of the structure, which was the world's first steel-frame skyscraper.
