Flatiron Building

And here is the Flatiron Building -- originally known as the Fuller Building when it was completed in 1902. It sits on a triangle plot of land bordered by 5th Avenue, Broadway and 23nd Street, and is probably one of the most famous pie-shaped buildings in the world.

Speaking of pie, I'm craving peach cobbler pie. Do you have a favorite pie?

I have seen this building many times, but never from this point of view, which is rather impressive!
Apple pie!

If I remember correctly you have also an excellent view of the building from Empire State..., but of course we cannot expect you to go up there every day! :-)

Beautiful picture. That's the perfect angle for shooting tall buildings!

Awesome photo. I love the sky in the background, too.

You have me craving a peach cobbler now.

Ooh, Ming -- love this! What a great shot of the Flatiron Building. I lived in a triangular building once in Paris—the point of the triangle was just wide enough to fit a bed.
As for pie -- pear tart, please.

Great shot today Ming. You are a guy after my own heart. Peach cobbler, my favorite. Come on down and I'll make us some!

Nice angle.

I had some unusual apple-blackberry pie made by a friend this week. Quite delicious! But now you've mentioned peach cobbler, my mouth is watering just a little ....... :)

I'm getting dizzy and a crick in my neck…

Banana and caramel cream! Yummy!

Everyone visiting NYC takes a shot at this building (including me! lol!), but your perspective is fantastic!

I love the Flatiron Building. Great shot.

Oh, and concord grape pie is my favorite.

Iconic building, but this angle is incredible. This has to be my favourite image you've taken. Blueberry pie.

I like how you turn from this famous building to pie in one easy move. Now that is a skill! :)

Great angle for a photo Ming. I'll have to try a shot like yours when I visit.
Peach cobbler with lots of extra dough crust soaked in the juice. MMMMMMMMMM good.

I like how you caught the finials on the lower detail but were able to nearly black out the Sprint sign. I think Sprint should not be allowed to soil such a beautiful building. Nice shot.

You caught such beautiful, delicate light here, and I love the color of the sky.

Pumpkin pie.

What a spectacular angle of such an iconic building - looks totally different!

i love apple pie, but hate the apples in them. i love the filling and the crust the best and enjoy it with a tall glass of whole milk, yum.

Nice view of the flatiron...

I love all pies, but apple is probably my favorite.

Gecko said...

Very pretty...and strange building! Unique is possibly the better word actually!
