Flatiron Apartment Rentals

In the past two decades, the Flatiron District in Manhattan has been utterly transformed from a somewhat shabby section of town to one of the greatest destination neighborhoods in all of New York City, both for out-of-town visitors and New Yorkers alike.


The Flatiron neighborhood is a place where people from all over come to marvel the beautiful architecture, old and new; or to relax in one of the city's jewels, Madison Square Park; or, above all, where the city, and the world, come to eat. For the lucky residents of Flatiron District apartments, many of the best restaurants are right on their doorsteps.  


Old & New Real Estate in the Flatiron

The Flatiron District is centered on the iconic Beaux-Arts Flatiron Building. Erected in 1902 and considered to be one of the first skyscrapers ever built, it was supported in large part by the then-revolutionary engineering feat of using a steel skeleton for support. The Flatiron neighborhood extends from Union Square up to about 28th Street, and running from east to west, Lexington Avenue and Irving Place to Sixth Avenue.


The Flatiron Building overlooks the increasingly pedestrian-friendly Flatiron Square as well as the fabulous, lovingly and completely restored Madison Square Park. Also presiding over this beauty of an oasis is the clock-faced Met Life Tower (the world's tallest building from 1909 to 1913); the new One Madison Park, a contemporary luxury high-rise condominium which, somewhat surprisingly, fits in rather nicely; and the architectural oddity Eleven Madison Avenue which was designed to be 100 stories tall, but when the Great Depression hit they stopped at floor 29, so it's all base, no finish. Also right nearby is the gold-domed New York Life building, built in 1928 and the site of the old Madison Square Garden.


A Variety of Restaurants Surround Apartments in the Flatiron

The Flatiron Building and Madison Square Park are also the epicenters of what has become one of New York City's best restaurant districts. There are too many great places to eat in the area to include them all here, but highlights include Danny Meyer's recently four-starred Eleven Madison Park; Hill Country, home of the city's best barbecue; the excellent and stylish Aldea, featuring chef George Mendes's marvelous Portuguese-inflected creations; The Breslin, April Bloomfield's fantastic celebration of all things rich and meaty in the lobby of the spanking-new Ace Hotel (which also houses Manhattan's first Stumptown Coffee); and of course, Danny Meyer's Shake Shack, located within Madison Square Park, and so ridiculously popular that there's a web cam up on their website, so Shack fanatics can see how long the line is before venturing away from their computers.


In September 2010, restauranteurs Joe Bastianich, Lidia Matticchio Bastianich and Mario Batali opened Eataly, a 50,000-square-foot space at 23rd Street & 5th Avenue, featuring Italian restaurants, groceries, and a wine store. A rooftop brewery and restaurant, La Birreria sits atop Eataly, providing a sort of rooftop biergarten in the middle of Manhattan. 



Life Near Union Square

At the Flatiron District’s southeast corner sits Union Square with its unique crowd and atmosphere. Long regarded as the city’s gathering spot, the area where Broadway meets 14th Street is anything but quiet. Here, Manhattan’s bustle and culture are well-represented, with many top-rated restaurants flanking the streets near the park, and the constant flow of New Yorkers through its Square.


For four days during the week, Union Square’s Greenmarket sets up to become an instant marketplace for fresh produce and the like. And with seven subway lines converging at the subway station, Union Square is no doubt an exciting section of town. So be sure check out any available Flatiron apartments, because this area is a hot market.
