Midtown Manhattan is where you get up close and personal to the superstructures that so dramatically define the New York skyline. The Empire State Building, 432 Park Avenue, the Bank of America Tower, the Chrysler Building – the unfettered confidence of the United States is nowhere more emphatically on display. The Flatiron Building can’t compete with its younger, more brashly high siblings in terms of height, but its unique shape has nevertheless made it one of the city’s great, iconic landmarks. Hold onto your hat if it’s a gusty day when you visit – the building’s location and odd shape generates stronger-than-usual down-winds that catch a lot of people out. To feel as though you’re in the very tall thick of things, there’s nowhere better than Midtown Manhattan.
