Flatiron Building

Latitude: 40°44'29.40"N
Longitude: 73°59'22.39"W

The Flatiron Building is one of the oldest surviving "skyscrapers" in New York. What is most significant about this building is the site. At the intersection of Broadway and 5th Aveue, there is an unusual amount of frontage offering plenty of viewing room to see the whole building without straining one's neck. The photo shows the often viewed perspective from the Major General William Jenkins Worth Monument. This is a key building in the Beaux-Arts style.
