This is a seldom seen view of one of New York City's most famous buildings, the Flatiron Building. In this black and white photograph taken in 1902, the Fuller Building (as it was then known) was still under construction. Here the photographer stands on an upper floor of the nearly complete building and aims his camera down. From above, you can see horsecarts, streetcars, and pedestrians, but precious few by contemporary standards.
