The Flatiron neighborhood is named after the iconic 1902 22-story Beaux-Arts “Flatiron Building” to the north leaning into a trapezoid public plaza: General Worth Square that flanks Madison Square Park and the famed food and restaurant market Eataly. Madison Square Park’s gardens are where the neighborhood traverses and congregates for summer concerts, tree lightings, art installations, food festivals, music and is a lunch spot destination at Shake Shack. The two main commercial arteries intersecting the Flatiron building are Fifth Avenue and Broadway showcasing an array of high-end fashion and décor shops. Anchoring the south is Union Square Park a European piazza designed by famed Frederick Law Olmstead and Calvert Vaux to accommodate mass congregations of New Yorkers’. Today the bustling park showcases artists, protesters, chess players, musicians, eateries, cafes and shopping. Union Square Park is a Greenmarket foodie destination (Mon | Wed| Fri | Sat) and a main subway transit hub (4/5/6/L/N/Q/R/W). The Flatiron District is the birthplace and home of many technology start-up companies deeming the area “Silicon Alley”, Baruch School of Business and many award-winning restaurants.
