New York City is not just peppered in rich history — it bathes in its history.
The Flatiron Building is an anchor in New York City history. The Building was constructed in 1902 and was one of the tallest buildings north of 14th Street and the only skyscraper. And if you are thinking that the Empire State Building has always been a NYC staple — keep in mind that the Building did not make its debut until 1931.
The Flatiron straddles Fifth Avenue — Broadway and East 22nd Street — 23rd Street. Today many New Yorkers and tourists enjoy relaxing in the outside seating, on the Broadway-side. As you enjoy a cup of tea — from Argo Tea — you sit across from William Seward, sitting pensively in, Madison Square Park. And of course you get a rather nice view of the Empire State Building.
Call To Action
Head down to the Flatiron District and hangout in one of the outside seating areas and people watch.
