The Flatiron Building (formerly known as the Fuller Building) is a groundbreaking skyscraper, built in 1902.

When construction was finished, the Fuller Building was one of the tallest in the city. It was also the only skyscraper north of 14th Street. The building rests on a triangular island-block that is formed by Fifth Avenue, Broadway and East 22nd Street. 23rd Street touches the northern peak of the triangle. The name was changed to Flatiron, deriving from the resemblance of clothes iron, by popular demand by locals.

The neighborhood around the building is known as the Flatiron District. The building was named a NY City Landmark in 1966, was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1979 and became a National Historic Landmark in 1989. It stands at a height of 285 feet with 22 floors.

Original tenants of the building, other than the Fuller Company itself, included publishers, an insurance company, some small businesses, music publishers, a landscape architect and other companies. Now, it is a popular tourist destination, as well as a functioning office building. Publishing companies such as St. Martin's Press, Tor/Forge, Picador and Henry Holt and Company are currently resided in the building.
