Built in various stages from 1888 to 1890, the Flatiron Building (or Flat Iron Building) in Rochester's Neighborhood of the Arts has a triangular shape that narrows from 100 feet to about 12 feet wide, on a wedge-shaped lot between Atlantic Avenue and University Avenue. It was originally a boarding house; through time, it has transformed into a collection of upscale lofts and apartments and several businesses, including Starry Nites Cafe, Edible's restaurant, and Joseph Dasta Fine Arts and Antiques (from Rochester Wiki)
