One of the icons of the city is definitely the Flatiron building, originally, the Fuller building. You may see it in many movies, in fact, nowadays, in many selfies. The style of the building is unlike that of the city’s early skyscrapers and the construction process was different as well in that there are fire escapes. This sketch is from the front view, on a summer day. This building is the quintessential example of early New York skyscrapers. One addition, due to the form of the building, winds swirl around it. Be careful, or you will have a Marilyn Monroe subway grate moment!
