Named for the famous Flatiron Building, the Flatiron District is bounded by 20th Street, Sixth Avenue, 25th Street and Lexington Avenue. The area is largely residential but is known commercially for catering to quite a few publishers and, recently, internet related companies which has given rise to another nickname for the neighborhood: “Silicon Alley.” On the southern edge of the district lies Union Square Park. This area is host to numerous retailers, restaurants, movie theatres, off-Broadway theatres and numerous events. The park itself has a much-beloved dog run and hosts the popular greenmarket where more than 70 farmers sell fresh produce, baked goods, organic meats and cheeses every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. For those in-between days, you can depend on the Whole Foods and the two Trader Joes in the neighborhood. Towards the end of the year, the southern end of the park is home to the Union Square Holiday Market.

Those desiring a slightly more bucolic park can head to the north end of the district to Madison Square Park first opened in 1847. With numerous distinguished statues, a fountain and reflecting pools, its own Shake Shack and nearby foodie hot-spots like Eataly, it’s a great place to relax on one of the benches and grab a snack.

For those with an eye for architecture, notable buildings in the area include the Flatiron Building, namesake to the district and one of the city’s oldest skyscrapers; the Toy Building; the Met Life Tower; and the New York Life Building, known for its rooftop gilded pyramid; and the historical Gershwin Hotel which owes its history to the New York pop scene of the 1960s (the lobby has an actual Campbell’s Soup Can autographed by Andy Warhol).

The area is incredibly convenient with access to the 4, 5, 6, L, N, Q, R, W, B, D subway lines and the Path train entrance on Sixth Avenue and 23rd Street. Buildings here tend to be mid and high-rise condos and rentals with desirable loft spaces.
