About Flatiron District Neighborhood

Neighborhood Map image

Named after the famously historic and distinctive Flatiron Building, the Flatiron building is a commercial neighborhood and passageway between downtown and midtown. Located near Midtown Manhattan, it sandwiched south of 23rd Street and north of 14th Street (Union Square). This convenient area is known for having commercial real estate offices, department stores, and reputable retailers, especially on Fifth Avenue. The vibe is fast-paced during the day and relatively mellow at night. Although the neighborhood is primarily commercial, recently developed all-inclusive luxury buildings are an option, though they do come at a large expense. Madison Square Park is the go-to choice for residents and workers looking to get a little fresh air.
