Description

When the 22-story Fuller Building opened in 1902, it was one of the tallest skyscrapers in New York. Popularly known as the Flatiron Building, the wedge-shaped skyscraper maintained a large basement restaurant that specialized in German dishes such as rinderbrust (beef brisket), broiled partridge, pig knuckles, bratwurst, and imported frankfurters.
