So a few readers have asked if we know why the holiday display in the public space at the intersection of 23rd/Broadway/5th Avenue partially upside down? See photo below (and answer below that):
Well the concept here is a giant holiday greeting card, and above is the front of the card which has been ‘opened’, to reveal the inside of the card on the other side. (See photo below).
Mystery solved! It’s all part of the Flatiron BID’s “23 Days of Flatiron Cheer” in the North plaza at 23rd and Broadway.
