Photographer's Note

"I found myself agape, admiring a skyscraper the prow of the Flatiron Building, to be particular, ploughing up through the traffic of Broadway and Fifth Avenue in the late-afternoon light."
H.G. Wells (1906)

Le Flatiron Building ("l'immeuble en forme de fer repasser") est un immeuble de bureaux New York, situ dans Midtown Manhattan.

Avec ses 22 tages et 87 mtres de hauteur, c'est l'une des tours les plus clbres de Gotham City.

Il a t bti en 1902 et il est situ un emplacement trs intressant, puisqu'au carrefour de la 23e rue, de la 5e avenue et de Broadway, face Madison Square.

Cet immeuble a donn son nom au quartier qui l'entoure, le Flatiron District.

Je vous le prsente ici dans la lumire du soir.

With its 22 floors and 87 meters high, it is one of Gotham City most famous towers.

It was built in 1902 and is located on an interesting place, where 23rd Street, 5th Avenue and Broadway cross.

The neighborhood around the building is called the Flatiron District after its signature building.

I show it here in late afternoon light.
