Flatiron District, New York: Historic Architecture, High-End Shopping, and Madison Square Park
Located about a mile south of Times Square, the Flatiron District has plenty of history—Theodore Roosevelt was born here, and the area is home to the Met Life Tower, the New York Life Building, and other well-known Manhattan skyscrapers. Back on the ground, the district draws shoppers to the homebases of high-end outlets such as Bergdorf Goodman and Lord & Taylor. Life-long learners can also find a curious attraction in the neighborhood: the Museum of Sex offers visitors a look at more than 15,000 artifacts and artworks depicting human sexuality.
Outside of the Flatiron District, the rest of Manhattan awaits you. Not far away is Madison Square Park, a public park with newly revamped gardens, and the Shake Shack, a popular year-round outdoor burger stand well worth the usual wait (be sure to save room for the frozen custard). The park is just a few blocks from Madison Square Garden, home to the New York Knicks and frequent venue for the city’s biggest concerts.
