On Location: The Flatiron building




The Flatiron building is located at 175 5th Avenue in Manhattan, and forms a triangular block with East 22nd St and 23rd St. This is probably one of the most famous buildings, and certainly one of the most photographed, in the world. It is quite stunning to see in real life. It almost looks too skinny to be able to stand upright.

This famous building was featured in a pretty amazing film called The Usual Suspects (1995). In the film, it serves as law offices where the main gang seek assistance, including Kevin Spacey in one of his finest performances. Unfortunately the iPhone camera doesn’t function so well at night time!

Hint for tomorrow’s location: Akeem lives here.


  1. I like the photo. Captures it well. And what a film!

    1. Thanks Alex! 🙂 Definitely going to revisit this awesome film soon.

  2. I went there too. Apparently its one of the few famous buildings in NY that the owner’s won’t pay to light at night

    1. Haha, really? No wonder it looks so ominous at night time!
