Book Beginnings: The Flatiron

Book Beginnings on Friday is a meme hosted by Gilion at Rose City Reader. Anyone can participate; just share the opening sentence of your current read, making sure that you include the title and author so others know what you're reading.

The Flatiron: The New York Landmark and the Incomparable City That Arose with It by Alice Sparberg Alexiou

"Once upon a time, the Flatiron Building was a member of my family."

As cool as the Flatiron Building is (I used to work in it), I admit I wondered who would actually devote the time to write an entire book about it, but the author's grandfather owned it for about fifty years, which makes perfect sense.

Now I'm very curious about this building....it is almost like a character in the story.
