Neighborhood Spotlight: Flatiron District
The Flatiron District is the site of one of the most recognizable buildings in Manhattan-- the Flatiron Building, which is one of the oldest, original New York City skyscrapers. This district is home to the historical site of Theodore Roosevelt's birthplace, as well as the birthplace of Silicon Alley, New York’s high technology sector. Among the few skyscrapers in the area is the MetLife Tower, which stood as the tallest building in the world for some time, overlooks Madison Square Park.
Flatiron is great for those who want a little bit of everything. Due to the rise in restaurants that have popped up all over the district, an influx in residences has followed. Residents include young professionals, as well as families with children. Madison Square Park, located on the north side of the district, creates an escape for those looking to find a quiet area within the chaos of Manhattan. During the day you can anticipate an energetic feel, while in the evening the ambiance is much more relaxed. Locals take advantage of the many restaurants, bars, and theaters in the area.
