Flat iron Building
The Flat Iron Building
was located on the northeast corner of Broadway and Central Avenue. It was
called the Flat Iron Building because of its triangular shape – similar to that
of an old flat iron. One of the businesses in the Flat Iron Building was the
Spudnut Shop. The Spudnut Shop specialized in hamburgers and Spudnuts. A
Spudnut was a doughnut made from special potato flour, apparently that one had
to purchase from the Spudnut Company. Reportedly the doughnuts were the best
when fresh.. Another business I remember in the Flat Iron Building back in the
late 60’s was Carl’s Music Store. Not sure when it went out of business, but he
handled musical instruments and supplies.musical instruments and supplies.
