It is a small park at Madison and 26th. Great space to hang and have a sandwich. Great public space with lots of seating. Even on a busy lunch time you can find space. Shake Shack adds to the vibe

I strolled in the park last week and enjoy the views all around. The fact that you can stare at the Flat iron building is also a nice plus. Great place to chill and people watch.

Flatiron District
Offering many of city’s best restaurants and shops set
amid classic New York architecture, the Flatiron
District is no longer under the tourist radar. At 23rd
Street is the famous triangular Flatiron Building,
which makes a good picture no matter what angle you

neighborhood is part of a historic district that was
