There's No Place Like NoMad


In 1999, shortly after New York City formally established the Madison Square Park North Historic District, The New York Times coined the District’s name: No (North) Mad (Madison Square). NoMad is centrally located in Manhattan between Seventh Avenue and Lexington Avenue from 23rd Street to 30th Street.

Now, NoMad is the quintessential live-work-play neighborhood in New York City.  Steeped in rich history and architecture, NoMad offers a unique combination of retail, hospitality, food, nightlife and more. The area is home to an exciting mix of industries – including creative, design, medical, and tech – as well as one-of-a-kind residential buildings. Plus, it boasts the incomparable Madison Square Park. The distinctive neighborhood is truly like no other part of New York City.
