The Flat Iron District
In towns and cities across America the shapes of buildings can be dictated by the erratic and haphazard days of early street planning. The origins of roads could often be traced back to the paths of cows such as in the country's earliest cities like Boston or the long winding path forged by Native Americans that extended the length of Manhattan, ultimately becoming Broadway.
Dissected streets would form irregular shaped lots, that no matter how narrow, would form valuable real estate. Triangular sites gave birth to "Flat Irons", wedge shaped buildings. Some structures were bland and simple, others embraced the odd shaped lots and took the opportunity to make architectural landmarks.
The Flat Iron District captures the grit and fortitude of American industry which couldn't be contained by any limitations of geography and civil planning. In it's simplest form, American industrialism was unstoppable. In it's wake are left architectural treasures and insights to a pivotal time and spirit of the American town and city.
