Flatiron Building in New York - Free art image

image name

Image Description: This building plays tricks with your sight. It makes an illusion of only one wall presence. This picture offers an upward view of the Flatiron Building, located at 175 Fifth Avenue in Manhattan, New York City. This groundbreaking skyscraper was finished in 1902, and was one of the tallest buildings in New York at the time. It is aptly named the Flatiron Building because it looks like a cast iron clothes iron, and is now an iconic image that people associate with New York City. The Flatiron sits on a wedge shaped island-block that is framed by Fifth Avenue, Broadway, and East 22nd street, making it is a very popular spot for tourist photographs. Right now it is a fully functioning office building, but in January 2009 an Italian real estate company purchased the majority stake in the building with plans to turn it into a luxury hotel; they do have to wait about ten years until the leases run out, but it has already been zoned to become the hotel. The estimated value of the Flatiron Building is about $190 millio
