We spent an entire day with family and teens at this mall. The building, which would be Burnham's first in New York City,  would also be the first skyscraper north of 14th Street. Contact the guest services desk at the theatre for more information. Retrieved from " https:
Eno later put a canvas screen on the wall, and projected images onto it from a magic lantern on top of one of his smaller buildings, presenting advertisements and interesting pictures alternately.
Both the Times and the New York Tribune began using the screen for news bulletins, and on election nights tens of thousands of people would gather in Madison Square, waiting for the latest results. During his life Eno resisted suggestions to sell "Eno's flatiron", as the site had become known, but after his death in his assets were liquidated, and the lot went up for sale. The Fuller Company was the first true general contractor that dealt with all aspects of building construction except design, and they specialized in building skyscrapers.
Black intended to construct a new headquarters building on the site, despite the recent deterioration of the surrounding neighborhood,  and he engaged Chicago architect Daniel Burnham to design it. The building, which would be Burnham's first in New York City,  would also be the first skyscraper north of 14th Street.
Fuller , founder of the Fuller Company and "father of the skyscraper", who had died two years earlier, but locals persisted in calling it " The Flatiron ",    a name which has since been made official. Early sketches by Daniel Burnham show a design with an unexecuted clockface and a far more elaborate crown than in the actual building. Though Burnham maintained overall control of the design process, he was not directly connected with the details of the structure as built; credit should be shared with his designer Frederick P.
Dinkelberg , a Pennsylvania-born architect in Burnham's office, who first worked for Burnham in putting together the World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago, for which Burnham was the chief of construction and master designer.
Building the Flatiron was made feasible by a change to New York City's building codes in , which eliminated the requirement that masonry be used for fireproofing considerations. This opened the way for steel-skeleton construction. At the vertex, the triangular tower is only 6.
Purdy and Henderson were the structural engineers. They strengthened the structure to deal with the wind load, as the building was quite narrow and therefore had less volume to resist it. They designed it so that, in theory, the building would turn compactly before any failure could occur in the metal structure. For the first time the construction of a skyscraper steel structure could be witnessed in full by the public, an event that received a great response and was immortalized by photographers Edward Steichen and Alfred Steiglitz.
The "cowcatcher" retail space at the front of the building was not part of Burnham or Dinkelberg's design, but was added at the insistence of Harry Black in order to maximize the use of the building's lot and produce some retail income to help defray the cost of construction.
Black pushed Burnham hard for plans for the addition, but Burnham resisted because of the aesthetic effect it would have on the design of the "prow" of the building, where it would interrupt the two-story high Classical columns which were echoed at the top of the building by two columns which supported the cornice.
Black insisted, and Burnham was forced to accept the addition, despite the interruption of the design's symmetry. Once construction of the building began, it proceeded at a very fast pace. The steel was so meticulously pre-cut that the frame went up at the rate of a floor each week. By February the frame was complete, and by mid-May the building was half-covered by terra-cotta tiling.
The building was completed in June , after a year of construction. New York's Flatiron Building was not the first building of its triangular ground-plan: All, however, are smaller than their New York counterpart. The Flatiron Building has become an icon of New York City, and the public response to it was enthusiastic,   but the critical response to it at the time was not completely positive, and what praise it garnered was often for the cleverness of the engineering involved.
Montgomery Schuyler , editor of Architectural Record , said that its "awkwardness [is] entirely undisguised, and without even an attempt to disguise them, if they have not even been aggravated by the treatment. The treatment of the tip is an additional and it seems wanton aggravation of the inherent awkwardness of the situation.
But suppose he needed a bookcase? Undoubtedly he has a highly eligible place from which to view processions. But for the transaction of business? When the building was first constructed, it received a lot of mixed feedback. The most known criticism received was known as "Burnham's Folly".
This criticism, focused on the structure of the building, was made on the grounds that the "combination of triangular shape and height would cause the building to fall down. The New York Tribune called the new building "A stingy piece of pie The New York Times called it a "monstrosity". But some saw the building differently. Wells wrote in his book The Future in America: A Search After Realities:. I found myself agape, admiring a sky-scraper the prow of the Flat-iron Building, to be particular, ploughing up through the traffic of Broadway and Fifth Avenue in the afternoon light.
The Flatiron was to attract the attention of numerous artists. It was the subject of one of Edward Steichen 's atmospheric photographs, taken on a wet wintry late afternoon in , as well as a memorable image by Alfred Stieglitz taken the year before, to which Steichen was paying homage. There was even a live, outdoor concert in the early evening.
