I’m just going to flat-out say it….This Friday’s Photo Feature has me contemplating the word, “flat”.
At times, this word can have a negative connotation.
Your hair can be flat.
Your beer can be flat.
Your tire can be flat.
Your souffle’ can be flat.
Your voice can be flat.
Your feet can be flat.
You can be flat broke.
You can fall flat.
Plus, the greatest of explorers thought the world was flat and one inch past the edge, you’d be eaten by sea monsters….
What does all this have to do with this week’s iPhone Friday Photo Feature: New York City?!
Well, I’d like to introduce our Friday tour with instead a positive way to celebrate the word, “flat”.
The Flat Iron District is a lovely neighborhood of Manhattan that is of course home to the iconic Flat Iron Building (built in 1902). This amazing area of NYC also hosts numerous restaurants, art galleries and shops.
So come take a quick tour of the Flat Iron District with me! You’ll fall in love with this New York neighborhood in 2 minutes FLAT!
