This neighborhood, named after the iconic triangular skyscraper at the juncture of 23rd Street, Broadway, and 5th Avenue, has seen its stock as a residential area rise greatly over the last three decades.
The Flatiron District has always been conveniently full of offices – without the tourist crush from which Midtown’s business district sidewalks suffer – but in recent years, an influx of restaurants and other amenities have made it just as desirable a place to call home. It’s still thoroughly saturated with commercial real estate – big-name retailers and small boutiques, chain restaurants and trendy neighborhood bistros, the offices of global companies and new tech start-ups all line the busy but charming streets.
Between the Flatiron’s perfectly central location – smack dab between east and west, north and south – and proximity to Union Square’s transit hub, the entire city becomes effortlessly accessible. Ease of travel aside, in the Flatiron all you need is right outside your front door; casual or fine dining, shopping, green space and more.
