Flatiron Building (Fuller Building), Manhattan, New York


This is a photo of the Flatiron Building (or Fuller Building as it was originally called), located at 175 Fifth Avenue in Manhattan. It is considered to be one of the first skyscrapers ever built. Upon completion in 1902 it was one of the tallest buildings in New York City. The building sits on a triangular island block at 23rd Street, Fifth Avenue, and Broadway, anchoring the south (downtown) end of Madison Square. The Flatiron Building was designed by Chicago's Daniel Burnham in the Beaux-Arts style. Like a classical Greek column, its limestone and glazed terra-cotta façade is divided into a base, shaft and capital.
