Flatiron Building, New York, Part Two

Following yesterday's archive footage of the Flatiron Building in New York we have some more contemporary footage.

The initial design of the building by Daniel Burnham shows a similar design to the one constructed, but with a far more elaborate crown with numerous set backs near the pinnacle. A clock face can also be seen. However, under the advice of John Wellborn Root, this was removed from the design.
