Flatiron Building Tours

star-5
2,735 Reviews
Flatiron Building
Both an architectural marvel and one of New York’s most recognizable landmarks, the Flatiron Building has been a city icon since its debut in 1902. Named for its uncommonly thin, triangular shape, the building was designed by architect Daniel Burnham and is a National Historic Landmark. It is not currently open to the public.

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.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Leading artists and photographers the likes of Alfred Stieglitz, Edward Steichen, and Albert Gleizes have all created works that feature the Flatiron Building.
  • While it’s possible to enter the building’s lobby, the rest of the structure is off-limits to visitors.
  • The Flatiron Prow Art Space, located at the front of the building at ground level, hosts a changing series of art exhibitions. 

How to Get There
Conveniently located in downtown Manhattan, the Flatiron Building can be accessed via numerous forms of transit. Take the N, Q, R, or W train to 23rd Street; the 4 or 6 train to 28th Street; or a PATH train to 23rd Street. The busy Union Square hub is also within walking distance. Alternatively, the area is served by numerous bus routes and can be reached on foot, by car, and by bike.

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).
Address: 175 5th Ave, New York, NY 10010, USA

Downtown Terra Cotta TourCultural Tours

Downtown Terra Cotta Tour

Before New York’s tallest towers were sheathed in glass, they were clad in clay. Terra-Cotta, or “fired earth,” is an ancient building material made of baked clay, that helped make New York a Modern city. At the turn of the 20th century, terra-cotta became a sought-after fire-proof skin for the steel skeletons of the city’s tallest buildings. Though you’ll find it on some of New York’s most iconic structures, including the Flatiron Building, The Woolworth Building, and the Plaza Hotel, terra-cotta often hides in plain sight, mimicking other materials like granite or carved wood. On this tour of Lower Manhattan, we’ll uncover some of city’s earliest terra-cotta structures. Along the way, we’ll see the tallest terra-cotta structure in the world and find out how this stunningly versatile material moved from monochrome to multi-colored, and helped shift the city from Beaux-Arts beauty to Art Deco splendor!
