medusa head flatironWe walk by it every day, but have you noticed the Medusa heads carved into the Flatiron building (see photo)?

Technically, gazing upon her would turn you into stone, so maybe it’s best if you haven’t looked, but it does add an interesting element to what is considered one of the first skyscrapers ever built (1902).

You can see the building as it was in the famous 1904 photo by Edward Steichen at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Steichen_flatiron.jpg
