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

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!
