With 2015 coming to a close, it’s been unquestionably the most exciting year in NoMad history. The NoMad Alliance was incorporated and it’s board began planning the organizations future activities. The year also saw numerous openings, from new restaurants and new hotels to the launching of the much heralded Rizzoli and Porcelanosa flagships. All of this has kept NoMad in the news constantly.

The last few weeks have seen a volley of NoMad coverage:

Living In: NoMad

The New York Times recently chose NoMad for a “Living In” feature, which seems fitting as the neighborhood is one of the city’s finest live/work neighborhoods and home to an increasing number of fine residences.

The piece offers a breakdown of NoMad’s housing, schools, cultural attractions and history. Be sure to click through the slideshow to see beautiful shots of NoMad’s cultural institutions and attractions, including Marysville and Madison Square Park.

AMNY also ran an extensive feature on NoMad this month, declaring that NoMad is “one of the most desirable places to live in the city.”

The piece highlighted a range of NoMad’s businesses, from the much buzzed about Sweetgreen, Breslin, and the NoMad Bar to some local attractions that fly under the media radar, including Desmond’s Tavern, Kalustyan’s and Curry in a Hurry.

Surprises From 2015, and Reasons for Hope

In the Grey Lady’s roundup of the good and bad of NYC in 2015, Rizzoli’s reopening in NoMad was cited as a reason for hope.

Bemoaning the shuttering of NYC institutions, The New York Times declared that “it seemed dangerous to hang on to false hope in an era when so many beloved institutions — Pearl Paint, Cafe Edison — were dying. Amazingly enough, though, Rizzoli did revive, at 1133 Broadway in Manhattan near Madison Square, in July.”

While we never like to see a classic NYC fixture closing down, we’re thrilled that NoMad could provide the silver lining and give a home to Rizzoli. Be sure to read this entertaining piece and try to spot the shout out to NoMad-resident Chelsea Clinton.
