Like New York City's inhabitants, the Flatiron District has been reinvented many times over the years. In the 19th century, the city's elite made the Flatiron District the place to be. It was here that American president Theodore Roosevelt was born. The Flatiron district itself is named after the Flatiron building, a skyscraper built in 1902. Visitors find a mix of interesting architecture, photography shops, art galleries, restaurants and cabarets. The Madison Square Park, Museum of Sex and Museum of Mathematics, and Union Square Park are all within convenient walking distance. Flatiron District's central location makes it an ideal place to base out of and start exploring the rest of New York's appealing hotspots.
