Flatiron Building

175 5th Ave, New York, NY, 10010

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.

It turned out that we were the only ones to sign up for our tour, so Justin was our personal tour guide for a few hours! It was a great balance of history and food and spots supporting the current community. Justin had a ton of knowledge and was a great guide!

My boyfriend enjoyed the history a lot. This food was pretty good as well. Kind of nice that we got a private tour since no one else signed up (they recently reopened since covid)

Private Flatiron Food, History and Architecture Tour
If you are interested in the history of the flatiron area while having a lot of great food and drinks then this is the tour for you. The tour operator is an enthusiastic historian and a genuine lover of the area. The pacing was perfect with bathroom breaks and the food choices were varied and delicious. Much more informative than we would have thought and the stories were very well told, with great visual aids as well. The history is much more than the flatiron area, it is all of New York. Well done!!

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).
