IN PICTURES: Celebrating Flatiron


Jennifer Brown, executive director of the Flatiron/23rd Street Partnership, welcomed more than 200 guests to the 10th annual Celebrate Flatiron Partnerships networking event at 230 FIFTH’s iconic rooftop and penthouse lounge.

As the group enjoyed drinks and hors d’oeuvres, along with a chance to see spectacular city views from the 27th Street Flatiron location, Nicholas Athanail of The Stanford Condominium and BID Board Member said, “The BID does an amazing job in this district, and certainly having such a great representation here means a lot to us!”

Flatiron District businesses in attendance included interior design global brand Porcelanosa, which debuted their NYC flagship showroom at 202 Fifth Avenue and 25th Street last month, and the newly reopened Mediterranean-style eatery Kat & Theo at 5 West 21st Street, between Fifth and Sixth Avenues.

Next month, the BID also plans more community outreach as it moves forward with the design process of a permanent reconstruction of the pedestrian plazas. “The first step will be a public workshop,” said Brown of the announcement, “and we’re going to invite all from the community to come and talk to us about what they’d like to see in terms of the design of the spaces, what’s important for the neighborhood. That’s going to kick off the largest capital project that the BID has ever done in the neighborhood!”
