Flatiron


Downtown on the West Side, from 14th Street to 24th Street, and from Park Avenue South to Sixth Avenue.

Boasting the comfort of a quaint park, the convenience of a bustling greenmarket, and the luxury of fashionable
shops, Flatiron has understandably become one of New York City’s hottest neighborhoods for co-ops and condos.

The center of the Flatiron District, and where the neighborhood takes its name, is the triangular turn-of-the-century
building at 23rd Street and Fifth Avenue. The Met Life building, with its distinctive clock tower, is another notable and
historic skyscraper. In addition, there are new luxury condo buildings like One Madison Park and 240 Park Avenue
South, with superior amenities including a sauna and massage rooms in addition to the standard doorman and fitness
center. High-ceilinged lofts, many with modern chef’s kitchens and other designer features, often lie behind the
façades of low-slung industrial buildings. Prewar co-op apartments can be found in Flatiron too, some on quiet blocks
which serve as a refuge from the city – but with great designer shopping just around the corner. Pet owners should
check out the dog run at Madison Square Park, which has a long and colorful history – it’s where the torch of the Statue
of Liberty was displayed for years! For cooking connoisseurs, an apartment in the Flatiron area is tough to beat, with
access to a Trader Joe’s grocery and wine store near Union Square, a large and bustling Whole Foods Market, and, in
season, the Union Square Greenmarket. Then take a break from the kitchen and experience world-class restaurants
like Gramercy Tavern and Union Square Café right at your doorstep.
