One of my favourite buildings in this city, maybe because it reminds me of my favourite TV show, Friends, or simply because it’s so breathtakingly different. Completed in 1902 the Flatiron Building was one of the city’s tallest buildings at 20 floors high. It has since had an extra floor added and although these days it is merely an office building there’s no doubt it is a New York icon…and it has been since 1966 when it was designated a New York City Landmark. From the back it is unassuming and appears to be just another building, beautiful and grand but nothing out of the ordinary. The view from the front is quite the opposite though, and well worth visiting for a great tourist snap!
