About the Neighborhood

North of Madison Square Park and south of Midtown, Nomad only recently emerged both as a proper noun and a sought-after neighborhood. That’s thanks largely to two hip hotels that have attracted a bunch of cool restaurants, shops and cafes: The Ace Hotel, The Nomad and their ilk work weirdly well between the hodgepodge of wholesale shops, tech start-ups and cast-iron buildings that fill this area’s streets. More excitement lies to the west, where hockey checking, pop-star crooning and three-point shooting happens at Madison Square Garden.
