By Paul Goldfinger, Photography editor @Blogfinger

Like Ocean Grove, the Flatiron Building is on the US National Register of Historic Places.  It was built in 1902 and has a steel triangular frame which sits at 5th Avenue, Broadway, and East 22nd St.  That part of NYC is called the “Flatiron District.”

From a photographic point of view, sometimes you get strange perspectives, as there is with my photo above which gives the illusion of Flatiron tilting.  Professional architecture photographers use large format cameras with special equipment to get the  correct appearance.  But many early photos of the Flatiron show the same off-perspective, but they just accept the result and don’t comment about it.

The name flatiron refers to the shape of an antique metal  clothes iron.

Below is Edward Steichen’s famous 1904 night photograph of the Flatiron. This building has been a favorite subject of photographers:

Little Italy has been fading away for years. Yet you can still take a food tour there and visit family businesses that exist after more than one hundred years.

On Columbus Day,  the Italian-American community is celebrated —-Paul Goldfinger, Editor @Blogfinger.

“Like a bolt out of the blue
Fate steps in and sees you through
When you wish upon a star
Your dreams come true.”

* 1940.  From the movie Pinocchio.  The song won an Oscar.

**Portnoy’s Complaint by Phillip Roth was published in 1969. Everyone I knew read it. It was a huge best seller.  If you did read it, you will understand the photograph above.
