Flatiron District

Good transportationGreat foodCool factorYoung crowd

The Flatiron District is situated on a busy stretch of the mid-20s in Manhattan and acts as a perfect bridge between downtown chic and midtown luxury.

It is truly the most accessible place to live in Manhattan, as the NRW runs diagonally from the east village to Columbus circle through the Flatiron district, and the BDFM and 6 trains are only a few blocks away.

Waking up and looking out the huge southern-facing windows at the architecture around this building make it feel like you're waking up in the streets of Europe.
