Much like the Empire State Building and the Chrysler Building, the triangular Flatiron Building—at the intersection of Broadway, Fifth Avenue and East 23rd Street—enjoys the privilege of being a much photographed and beloved New York icon. Every Sunday, the Flatiron/23rd Street Partnership sponsors walking tours of the historic district named after the famous 109-year-old building. Venture on a 90-minute journey through this notable neighborhood, led by some exceptional tour guides. The landmarks covered include the MetLife Clock Tower, the Appellate Division Courthouse, the New York Life Insurance Building and, of course, the Flatiron Building. If you can't make it out on Sunday, download the Partnership's detailed neighborhood brochure and go on a self-guided tour anytime. For more information, please visit flatironbid.org.
