Vintage Images of Flatiron Building

 

The building, located at the intersection of Fifth Avenue and Broadway, just south of Madison Square Park (175 Fifth Ave.), was completed in June, 1902.

It was designed by Frederick Dinkelberg / Daniel Burnham in a triangular shape, 22-story, 285-foot (86.9 m) and initially known as the Fuller Building. The George A. Fuller Company was a major Chicago contracting firm. However, the place had been known as the “Flat Iron” prior to the construction of the building, because the shape of the site recalled the common household tool used for pressing clothing (see photo on the right).
