Over a hundred years ago, the Flatiron District was a very important commercial and residential district in New York City. The Met Life Tower was once the tallest building in the world, many important historical figures lived in the neighborhood and there was, of course, Ladies Mile. Today, this incredibly beautiful and charming neighborhood is full of the city’s best restaurants and shops. Come enjoy all the modern day popularity of the Flatiron District and hear the interesting tales of what came before.
“Mario Batali’s Italian food court/theme park in the Flatiron District, Eataly (breakfast for two $15), attracts a crowd, and it’s a daily ritual for this writer, who uses the superstore as a coffee shop. I walk to work every morning and stop in at Café Lavazza for the best skim cappuccino and apricot croissant ever. Better than Milan, better than Paris,” Travel + Leisure.
“Wedged between the indie cool of the East Village and the corporate canyons of Midtown is this trio of neighborhoods. It’s here that you’ll find the eclectic crowds of Union Square, the triangular Flatiron Building, and the verdant respite of Madison Square Park.” And Union Square, “Union Square is like the Noah’s Ark of New York, rescuing at least two of every kind from the curling seas of concrete. In fact, one would be hard-pressed to find a more eclectic cross-section of locals gathered in one public place: suited businessfolk gulping fresh air during their lunch breaks, dreadlocked loiterers tapping beats on their tabla, skateboarders flipping tricks on the southeastern stairs, rowdy college kids guzzling student-priced eats, and throngs of protesting masses chanting fervently for various causes,” Fodor’s.
