175 Fifth Ave., New York, NY 10010, United States

Some buildings are born to be icons. With its unique triangular “iron” shape, Beaux-Arts styling and bragging rights as one of New York’s first skyscrapers, The Flatiron Building’s eternal fame was secured from the beginning. Built in 1902 by Chicago-based architect Daniel Burnham, it stands 22 stories tall at the multi-street intersection of Broadway, Fifth Avenue, East 22nd and 23rd streets to the north, hence the angular design. Today, the hotel is a working office building (and longtime home of St. Martin’s Press) worth an estimated $190 million.
