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

Steichen has shot the building. See above.
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.
