Flatiron District Movers
Located between Midtown and Lower Manhattan, the Flatiron District is named for the Flatiron Building, a triangular-shaped 22-story landmark built in 1902. The district, filled with beaux-arts and cast-iron architecture, runs from W 20th Street to E 27th Street, between 6th Avenue and Lexington Avenue. Majestic trees fill Madison Square Park, an urban oasis between E 23rd and E 26th. The district includes the Ladies’ Mile Historic District and still, shoppers come from all over Manhattan to the district’s clothing, homewares, and design stores. In the 1980s, the district began transitioning from commercial to residential and today it’s vibrant and fast-paced during the day but fairly mellow at night.
