  WHAT’S LIVING IN Flatiron District LIKE?

The Flatiron District is a tiny neighborhood in Manhattan named after the iconic triangular Flatiron Building, constructed in 1902. This area is home to a vibrant mix of office buildings, boutiques, department stores, famed restaurants, elegant brownstone homes, and new residential towers.

It's got a lot of offer. You can grab a burger from the original Shake Shack and enjoy the people watching as you hang out in Madison Square Park. Celebrity chef Mario Batali's popular Eataly market is a great place to shop for groceries or eat your way through all the food stalls. For more upscale dining options, try Gramercy Tavern and Eleven Madison Park. There are plenty of banks, pharmacies, dry cleaners, and other everyday conveniences within walking distance, and a number of subway lines make stops in this neighborhood, providing an easy commute downtown or uptown.

The Flatiron District is bordered on the north by NoMad, on the east by Gramercy Park, on the south by Greenwich Village, and on the west by Chelsea.
