              Located in the magnificent Flatiron district with late 19th and early 20th century architecture, golden cupolas, neo-classical motifs, the famous Flat Iron building, Manhattan's first department stores, all between Union Square and Madison Square Park. Great location for architecture buffs. Close to 5th Ave shops, remarkable restaurants, bars, cafes, the Rubin Museum, Museum of Sex, and 15 minute walk from the famous Hi-Line, the new elevated park through Chelsea, or the Empire State Building. Few minutes walk from the latest hip area - the ACE Hotel & Madison Sq Park. All subway lines within a couple of blocks. 15 min walk to Greenwich Village & Soho.


              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1994

              About the owner: I am a documentary filmmaker and writer and my husband is a cartographer, graphic designer and publisher. He speaks German and English and we both speak some Spanish. We travel regularly and spend some time each winter in Oaxaca, Mexico.

              Why the Owner Chose Flatiron:
              We love the architecture of our neighborhood and its history. Originally our loft was a girdle factory (dating back to 1906), but when we bought the loft (1994) our building and the neighborhood was filling up with photographer studios and artists. Now it has become fashionable and the large loft buildings are turning into the silicon valley of Manhattan with lots of new high-tech, social media start-ups. But it's also exploding with new restaurants, cafes and grocery stores.

              The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
              We love the openness of traditional lofts. They are very hard to find now in Manhattan as most have been divided into little rooms. Since we had no young children we left ours open. We also love the location - central to all public transportation in New York. You can walk to the Village, Soho, the Empire State Building, mid-town or you can hop on a subway at Union Sq and be in Williamsburg, Brooklyn in 10 minutes.
