The Flatiron building, completed in 1902, and located at the intersection of Fifth Avenue and Broadway, has become one of the icons of New York City.

Architecturally, and ironically, the building is considered representative of the "Chicago School," with a steel frame, masonry cladding, and sylistically having the three parts of a classical column.

This multi-frame Leica M9 image, taken in July 2010, allows us to see some of the fine details of this building that may not have been apparent in older photos.
