The Flatiron Building.

I love the Flatiron Building.

And have ever since it was pointed out to me by my mother way back in the '60s.

I've looked at it a thousand times and it never gets old.

I'm not alone in this affection.

Steichen has shot the building. See above.

As has nearly every tourist who's ever come to New York.

Today I had a mix session at a sound place right around the Flatiron Building. I took the 5th Avenue bus downtown and got off early--at 34th Street--to have a short walk. I was early.

When I reached 26th, where Broadway crosses 5th, I saw the Flatiron in all its splendor. The light in New York this morning was like Paris in the Spring, or Santa Monica without smog.

I looked up and saw the statue I've pasted here. It's perched at the very top of the Flatiron. I had never seen it before.

I love New York.

Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your
articles? I mean, what you say is valuable and everything. However imagine if you added some great visuals or
videos to give your posts more, "pop"! Your content is
excellent but with images and clips, this website could
definitely be one of the greatest in its field. Terrific blog!
