world pictures U.S.: East: Manhattan: Starchitecture

Although there were dozens of steel-framed buildings in New York City by 1900, the 20-story Flatiron Building (originally the Fuller Building) of 1902 stands out. Designed by Daniel Burnham, whose reputation was at least as tall as this building, it's been called an elevated palazzo. The shape derives from the lot, a triangle created by the diagonal slash of Broadway through the street grid.
