North Of Madison
Why I Love NOMAD?
Let me introduce you to this chic part of town that was home for me when I first moved to Manhattan 35 years ago, where my kids were born and the part of town I had my warehouse and worked out of for many years. I have seen NoMad evolve over these 35 years and it is truly a “Cinderella” story.
North of Madison, or NoMad as it is affectionately known, is rapidly becoming the next location to be in Manhattan. Old commercial buildings that housed wholesalers and warehouses of low-end clothing and perfumes are being demolished and replaced by new luxury high-rise residential condominiums, posh hotels, Michelin star restaurants, and lavish boutiques. The Virgin Hotel is set to open in late 2021 and The Ritz Carlton is on the way, set for 2022. The central location of NoMad, anchored by established neighborhoods such as Flatiron to the South, Chelsea to the West and Midtown to the North, makes it a very desirable destination. Madison Park, located at the South tip of NoMad, is a rare all age-friendly oasis in this bustling city with beautifully planned gardens that are open year-round. This dog-friendly park with a sizeable dog run is a delight for all, whether you are a lover of art, music, or horticulture, there are all kinds of interesting activities taking place here year-round.
The goal of my team is not only to be your consultant and main source of information and resource regarding real estate in the area but to provide real experience and look into why this might be the right place for you to call home.
