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. The area is named for the Flatiron building, which was completed in 1902 and boasted the reputation of being one of the tallest skyscrapers in New York when it was finished. The pancake-like building, situated on a triangular block on 23rd Street, was named Flat Iron due to its uncanny resemblance to a caste iron clothing iron.

Check out the rooftop beer garden and gourmet Italian cuisine at Eataly, where you can feast on prosciutto and hard cheeses whilst reveling in the blue sky above.

Madison Square Park occupies 3 blocks above 23rd street, and it is a popular spot for the area’s many employees to come have lunch. It is also home to the flagship Shake Shack location (burger restaurant), which has developed a cult following and literally has 45-minute lines out of the park during peak hours.

Directly next to the park a collection of gourmet food trucks rotate with markets and Christmas festivities based on the season. Area restaurants come there to introduce newcomers to their cuisine via a convenient to-go setup.

The Flatiron District is also home to the flourishing tech scene in New York, with up-and-coming tech startups occupying lofts and incubators around the area.
