So here is the famed Flatiron building which opens up into 5th Avenue - at the right - and Broadway - at left. I am about to get flattened by an incoming flurry of yellow cabs but - hey - that's what I do for this blog.
Now, I assure you that I have lived in this town for close to 13 years now but it wasn't until last year that someone pointed out to me that the building was named because of its "flat iron" shape - and that I was, in fact, not pronouncing its name correctly.
So to all those tourists who stopped me to ask the name of the building and went home thinking they had seen the Flatrion (as in 'flah-tree-on') building, my apologies because what you actually saw was the Flatiron building (as in 'flat-iron'). I am truly sorry.
