Photo by myself on Broadway, around 22nd Street.
The ornate building in the foreground is one of the most photographed landmarks in New York. The building shape follows the odd triangular area where Broadway and Fifth Avenue cross.
Perhaps due to its recognizable and striking silhouette, the Flatiron has been photographed by master photographers such as Edward Steichen and Alfred Stieglitz.
Besides the superb detail in the photograph above, the building uses curved glass in the windows on the ends, to follow the curve of the building.
The building in the background is located along Fifth Avenue.
