Flat Iron

Flat Iron Building

In NYC, Broadway cuts diagonally across several blocks causing triangle shaped  pieces of property. The term flatiron refers to the resemblance to an old cast-iron clothes iron. The Flat Iron Building at Broadway and 5th Avenue is not the first or the only triangle shaped building, but it is an iconic symbol of New York City as it is so recognizable.
