Quick Profile

NoMad, North of Madison Square Park, is a rectangular swath of land that is bordered by East 25th Street to the south, East 29th Street to the north, Sixth Avenue to the west, and depending who you ask, Madison or Lexington Avenue to the East. It’s had its acronymed name for over two decades but not every New Yorker calls the neighborhood NoMad.

Historic architecture, trendy hotels and restaurants and high-priced apartments - NoMad wasn’t always the coveted neighborhood that it is today. It’s gone through many transformations over the years. Including a red light district known as the Tenderloin in the 1880’s. It was a popular shopping destination and a place where high society held court in the mid 19th century. It was part of New York City’s Silicon Alley in the 1990’s.

As of lately, world class chefs and restaurants have moved into NoMad. It’s tied with Midtown Manhattan for having the most Michelin stars (six stars to date). Besides NoMad’s architecture, nightlife, and restaurants, we can’t forget the added perk of being close to other great neighborhoods and cultural institutions. NoMad’s central location makes it easier to get just about anywhere in the city. You can walk to Chelsea, West Village, Union Square or Grand Central Station in no time at all. The N, R, 1, 6, B, Q, F, and M are very close or just a few blocks away. Penn Station is also within walking distance.

Destination Spots

Despite its relatively small size there is lots to do in NoMad. At first glance one would think that drinking and eating is the only thing to do in this neighborhood. Let’s not forget the great outdoors. Madison Square Park is a 6.2 acre public square between Fifth Avenue and Broadway at 23rd Street. For a small New York City park it has much to offer. There are outdoor art installations, concerts, children’s events, and beautiful manicured gardens. Take a walk through the grounds and check out the restored fountain on the south end of the park. Don’t forget to check out the reflection pool and Farragut monument (Admiral David Glasgow Farragut) on the north end. Our favorite thing to do is grab a burger from the world famous Shake Shack and do some serious people watching. 

The Museuem of Sex on Fifth Avenue and the National Museuem of Mathmetics on 26th Street covers both ends of the spectrum and its guarenteed to show you a good time no matter which venue you choose. 

You can’t visit NoMad without stopping by the NoMad Hotel. It’s just one of those things you have to do. It’s located in a very cool restored Beaux-Arts building. The hotel is hip and the rooms have an old world aesthetic. Pet’s are welcome and you can explore the city with a complimentary bicycle. If you’re just passing through make sure you have a drink at the cozy book lined bar. It's the perfect place to relax and take a break from the chaos of New York City. 

What You Might See

Bars of every kind. Whisky bars, sports bars, hotel bars, cocktail bars, and whole in the wall bars. You name it, NoMad has it. You’ll also see lots of great architecture like historic brownstones and sleek modern high rises. We can’t forget the iconic buildings like New York Life Building, The Johnston Building (NoMad Hotel), The Manhattan Appellate Courthouse, and The Church of the Transfiguration.

What You Don’t Know

We know the following facts may not excite everyone but it might be worth remembering the next time you need an icebreaker at a cocktail party. The original Madison Square Garden was located where the present day Madison Square Park is. Burger behemoth, The Shake Shack was first conceived from a hot dog cart at Madison Square Park's first art installation, “I ♥ Taxi.” From 1876 to 1882 the torch and arm of Lady Liberty was on display in Madison Square Park. It was to encourage excitement for the actual Statue of Liberty project in New York Harbor.
