One of the most famous buildings in New York City is the Flatiron Building. Why is it so famous? It is shaped like a piece of pie. It only took nine months to complete. What made the Flatiron Building really interesting, however, was the new technique that was used to put it together. A special steel skeleton was used to support the building, then decorative pieces of tile were hung to make the walls. Find out how hard it was to make a building this size fit the shape of available land, as well as how New Yorkers were certain the building would fall down. Book jacket.
