Built between 1901 and 1903, this building gathered a lot of attention, criticism and even more appreciation in the olden times. Built initially as the headquarters of Fuller construction Company, it was meant to be called Fuller building. But it came to be known as flatiron building because of the shape it was built in. It was also called as Burnham’s folly, after the architect’s name as it gathered a lot of doubts in people’s mind, due to the unconventional shape and building style. Situated at the end of Madison Square, this is definitely one of the attractions you should witness from at least outside- if you do not get access to the indoors of the building.
