This is a wonderful place for people of all ages, mathematics lovers and mathematics haters. Explore the world of mathematics mainly from a geometric perspective: trikes with square wheels, mirrors, tiling, driving on a weird moebius track. There were many school children there during our...More

Offering many of city’s best restaurants and shops set
amid classic New York architecture, the Flatiron
District is no longer under the tourist radar. At 23rd
