    Can anyone tell me if the Flatiron Building in NYC still has scaffolding the the first floor (ground level)? I'm going to NYC early next month and I wanted to get a good photo of it since it's my favorite building in the world.

    Thanks

        Well I'm back and I can officially confirm that it's been taken down. If anyone would like to see photos I'd be more than happy to show you!

                It's so funny, that building draws so much attention! I alwaysss point it out when we go by, like a big dork... I also like the arch at the park... except the park is shady at night...

                  That's because it's a classic, it was one of the first buildings to use a steel skeleton. They really don't build buildings like it anymore with all the detail and rock work. When the Flatiron Building was completed in 1902 (then Fuller Building), I believe it was the tallest in the world. I think it's probably the oldest skyscraper in NYC, which adds to it's popularity!
