About This Image

Having seen the Flatiron Buildings in both Atlanta and Asheville, I knew I had to see the most famous one of them all, the Flatiron in New York City! The Flatiron is definitely one of those buildings that I would re-visit again and again if I lived nearby. As it was, my time in NYC was short and I made the most of it. I spent a good deal of time roaming the vicinity of the Flatiron Building looking for the best angle to use given the available light and conditions.

Of my handful of pictures from that brief time, my favorite was this one. There was something humanizing about the traffic and the people trotting across the crosswalk that grounded this picture for me. It made this Flatiron picture as much about the streets of Manhattan as the iconic architecture that stands  on those streets.

The Flatiron is a highly recognizable building completed in 1902. It was designed by Chicago architect, Daniel Burnham. The Flatiron differs in architectural style from it’s contemporaries. The style was unique for its period and has long since become a landmark building. It’s also been featured in movies, such as the site of the famous Daily Bugle in the Spider-Man movies! Yes, I am just geeky enough to know that piece of trivia. And perhaps the comic book connection is what made me want to do this as graphic art rather than a photo? Whatever the cause, this has been one of my more popular New York City prints over the years.

Whether collectors are fond of the architecture or have a geeky nature like me, this one has been a popular choice among my New York City art prints. It must either speak to people who love the Big Apple or perhaps those who just love landmark architecture? Which brings you here?

How Can I Help?

At the end of the day, it’s important to me that you can put a face with the art you’re considering purchasing through my site. Aside from the print vendor who ultimately prints and ships your order, this is a one man show. The person who made the art is the same one who is typing this message and the one who will answer your questions if you drop me a note.

You are not a number and I care that you are happy with whatever art you might buy here. I’m here if you’d like to ask questions before or after purchasing. And I’m also happy to work with you where possible to customize the work you’re buying. Maybe you’d like a tweak to the shape of a print to fit in with your existing wall art. Or you’d like to add a little nod to someone special in it? Just ask! I also keep a running list of subjects I don’t currently have but people are seeking. So if you enjoy the style of my work but didn’t find quite what you were looking for, please do let me know.

I’ve been an artist for 15 years now and most of that time it’s been my full-time passion. And it matters to both the endorphins in my brain and the food I put on the table for me (and my cats) that you find the experience of purchasing the products offered here to be a pleasure.
