Capturing New York’s Iconic Flatiron Building with @kat_in_nyc

To view more photos and videos of the Flatiron Building, explore the Flatiron Building location page and follow @kat_in_nyc.

The Flatiron Building in Manhattan has been a favorite subject for photographers since its construction in 1902. Native New Yorkers and visiting Instagrammers alike flock to the building to shoot its iconic wedge-shape. New York photographer Kat Irlin (@kat_in_nyc) has a passion for photographing the Flatiron. “It is photogenic in any weather but looks best in cloudy weather and during sunset. I think it’s a must-see for anyone visiting NYC,” she says.

To get a great shot of the Flatiron, Kat offers a few tips: “You’ll need to cross the intersection right in front of the Flatiron to get far enough away to capture it in its full beauty. I try to look for interesting ‘accents’ around it—there are usually pretty flowers, fixtures and even puddles for #puddlegrams around the building depending on the season. There is a very pretty park across the street, and the Flatiron looks stunning when peeking through the trees. Lastly, to get a minimalist shot, aim at the very top of the building and have the sky take up most of the space.”
