175 Fifth Ave.
New York, NY
Known for its triangular floor plan, designed to make maximum use of its wedge-shaped site at Broadway and Fifth Avenue
Built 1901-1902. Stieglitz, Steichen and others have photographed the structure from Madison Square Park
Tradition has it that the building inspired the phrase "23 skiddoo." The shape of the building was said to create updrafts that lifted the skirts of women passing on 23rd Street. When men gathered for a glimpse, police shooed them away with the phrase, "Hey, you, 23 skiddoo!"
