The Iconic Flatiron Building

The Iconic Flatiron Building

When the Flatiron Building was erected in 1902, critics savaged it. But this oddly-shaped building at the intersection of 23rd Street, Broadway and Fifth Avenue immediately won New Yorkers’ hearts. In later years, as the surrounding neighborhood turned shabby, the Flatiron remained a beloved symbol of New York.

Journalist Alice Sparberg Alexiou, author of "The Flatiron: The New York Landmark and the Extraordinary City That Arose With It," will talk about what this iconic structure means to the city, the world, and to her.
