The Basics

Constructed on a narrow, triangular plot, the Flatiron Building is both an ingenious engineering solution and a world-renowned symbol of New York City. It was one of the city’s earliest skyscrapers and originally known as the Fuller Building, with a the 22-story design intended to replicate the 3-part structure of a classical Greek column. Largely used for office spaces and off-limits to the public for most of its existence, the building is nevertheless beloved of New Yorkers and visitors alike.

The Flatiron Building is a staple of many Big Apple itineraries, including hop-on hop-off bus tours, neighborhood walking tours, private sightseeing trips, architecture-themed excursions, and more.

Russell did a great job weaving together historical and architectural information with his knowledge as a native New Yorker into compelling stories throughout the tour. We learned a lot, ate some great local food and enjoyed seeing this part of the city in greater depth than we ever could have on our own. We definitely recommend this tour and be sure to arrive hungry!

When to Get There

The Flatiron Building is worth visiting throughout the year, but note that it’s best to discover it by day; the building’s illumination is limited at night, so you’re more likely to capture winning photos during daytime hours. If you can, time your visit for lunchtime; in season, the pop-up Madison Square Eats food market, a popular midday destination, is located just steps away.

Exploring the Flatiron District

The Flatiron Building may be the highlight of its eponymous district, but it isn’t the only thing to see in the area. Wander into Madison Square Park for a leafy pause; go on a food crawl of Eataly; seek out high-end restaurants like Eleven Madison Park and the Gramercy Tavern; and drop in the National Museum of Mathematics (or, for adults only, the Museum of Sex).
