Flatiron District – An Architectural Wonder
What draws people to the Flatiron District? Is it the historical architecture or the cast-iron buildings? Maybe it’s the unique shops or contemporary restaurants? Or is it the many clubs, lounges and cabarets that beckon night owls each evening? Whatever the draw, this Manhattan neighborhood is a destination for design buffs, adventurous shoppers, and foodies scouting out the next great meal.
Overflowing with historical icons and extraordinary views it only makes sense to have photography shops dedicated to those who want to capture it. For over 30 years Adorama, for example, has delivered superb customer service for those looking for video, photo or imaging advice or equipment. The neighborhood’s crown jewel is the relaxing Madison Square Park. The grounds encompass lush gardens, a secure, gated playground, and a canine’s paradise. The Flatiron Building itself, with its steel-framed skyscraper resembling a cast-iron clothes iron is the site that gives the neighborhood its name and New York one more iconic image.
Those looking for a unique dining experience will find many to choose from. ABC Kitchen serving only local, fresh and organic foods is committed to the farm-to-table movement. Higher-end diners thrill to Eleven Madison Park. For a trip back in time circa (late 1800s), visit Old Town Bar. Whether reading a book with a burger or “hanging” with the locals, the casual old style ambience of this neighborhood bar has stood the test of time.
During the holidays a must for all shoppers is the Union Square Holiday Market. Eager consumers come from all over to wander the many booths filled with home-made jewelry, candles, soaps, clothing and more.
