Flatiron Building

Designed by famous Chicago architect Daniel Burnham, and completed in 1902, Flatiron (originally Fuller) Building is one of the best known buildings in American architectural history. Burnham succeeded in using 19th century classical revival architectural style to decorate a 20th century engineering wonder. In lesser hands, it would have looked like a wedding cake on drugs.IMG_5060.jpg

The guy  in shorts and t-shirt gets off his rental bike, sets up a sturdy tripod and expensive camera, stands on the  coffee shop Flatiron Building 12.jpgchair to get a higher vantage point and takes a photo looking north from Daniel Burnham’s Flatiron Building.

Only in Manhattan.
