In a city filled with architectural masterpieces, carve out some time to visit one of the most stunning buildings in Manhattan. Located just a quick 20-minute stroll or subway ride from our hotel, head towards Madison Square Garden for the best view of the iconic Flatiron building.
Sit in the lush urban oasis while admiring the unusual and spell-bounding triangular shape. The building measures six feet at it’s narrowest and is one of the most photographed facades in New York City. Memorialized by famous artists Alfred Stieglitz and Edward Steichen, it’s steel frame is fronted with terracotta and limestone in Beaux-Arts style and features influences from Italian and French Renaissance. Criticized for its unusual shape upon completion in 1902, skeptics referred to “Burnham’s Folly” claiming the height would cause the building to collapse. Last we checked, it’s still standing. Visit for swoon-worthy Instagram photos before popping into Eataly across the street for the best Italian espresso and crunchy biscotti in the city.
