Flatiron, Asheville, North Carolina

Asheville has two iconic flatirons.  The first is the Flatiron Building, designed by Albert Wirth and built in 1926. It’s reminiscent of Manhattan’s Flatiron Building.

The second is the Flatiron sculpture, designed by artist Reed Todd, and located at the end of Wall Street.  It’s a giant replica of the kind of irons used by laundries and housewives at the turn of the 19th century.

Asheville is one of my favorite places to go. Art and music are everywhere in this great little city.  It’s also known for it’s food and many great local breweries.  To top it off, it’s a very progressive city, friendly to people from all walks of life. All in all, Asheville is a great place.

My wife says I make stuff up. While that's probably true I'm going to stick to stuff that's mostly true.
