The Flatiron District
This beautiful, old-fashioned neighborhood tucked in between Chelsea and Gramercy is home to a few significant New York landmarks as well as some fascinating lesser-known spots. The Flatiron Building, after which the district was named, is one of the most popular in this neighborhood. You can also visit Madison Square Park and join the long line for Shake Shack or shop ‘til you drop at one of the many affordable little shops here. The bibliophiles out there should stop at the Center for Book Arts—a print shop and art exhibit—or Rizzoli Bookstore, the best cozy, classic-looking place to pick up a few books in the Flatiron District.
