Photographer's Note

On a day with a rare deep-blue NYC sky, I took a walk around the famous Flat Iron building and photographed it from several different angles. Of course, the head-on view, showing the slender front of the building, is the most popular POV, but I really loved the details on the facade of the building, and here is the western side, looking up from street-level. In the workshop, there is another view showing the western side and front tip.

The Flat Iron Building was completed in 1902, and it stands on a trinagular block between East 23rd Street, Broadway, and Fifth Avenue. It is in the Beaux Arts style, with a limestone and glazed terra-cotta facade. At the front tip of the building, it is only 2 meters (6.5 feet) wide.
