Hi. I’m David Hill with New York Habitat. Welcome to the second of our two part video tour dedicated to the Flatiron District, here in Manhattan, New York. The Flatiron District is roughly bounded by 20th Street to the south, Sixth Avenue to the west, 26th Street to the north, and Lexington Avenue to the east. In our first episode dedicated to the Flatiron District, we shared some of the history of the area, took you to Madison Square Park and the Flatiron building itself. You’ll find episode 1 on our YouTube Channel. If you’re interested in history and museums, you’re in luck. The Flatiron District is home to many museums and historical sites such as: The American Jewish History Museum at 15 West 16th Street, The Robert R Livingston’s Masonic Museum and Library at 71 W 23rd St. And even the Museum of Sex at 233 Fifth Ave. If you’re looking for things to check out during the day, there’s plenty to do and see, and shopping is definitely one of the most popular activities. So if you enjoy shopping, you’re in luck. You’ll find fantastic shopping locations lining the streets of the Flatiron District. If you’d like to experience the Flatiron District like a true local, you should definitely rent a vacation rental or furnished apartment from New York Habitat. There’s no better way to experience this city than to live in a real New York apartment. The food and culture in the Flatiron District is very diverse. You can get tapas at a bar, do fine dining in a dimly lit restaurant, or experience the famous Shake Shack in Madison Square Park. For a truly unique dining experience, here are a couple hotspots: The Italian mega-market “Eataly” is found on 5th Ave. Inside there are separate restaurants devoted to meat, fish, vegetables, pasta and pizza, cheese, and wine. If you’re in the mood for something a little more casual, head over to Hill Country, an epic BBQ restaurant, bar and marketplace that also serves as a live music venue for American Roots Music. Other restaurants that should be on your list are: Craftbar at 900 Broadway, Blue Smoke at 116 East 27th St, and Boqueria at 53 West 19th St. The Flatiron District offers some very unique nightlife experiences as well. Let’s take a look. If you’ve got ping-pong skills, you’ll want to spend some time at SPIN NYC on 23rd St. This basement bar features plenty of ping pong tables. Other fun nightlife stops are: The Flatiron Lounge inside the Flatiron Building, Slate Restaurant Bar and Billiards at 54 W 21st St, and 230 Fifth, a roof top bar located at, you guessed it, 230 5th Ave. If you’re looking to take in a show, make your way over to the historic Gramercy Theater. The Gramercy Theater opened in 1937 as a movie theater. Today it is an intimate concert venue for artists such as the Counting Crows, Jay-Z, and many more. It’s a great place to catch a show.
