Join NYCxDESIGN in a design-filled journey across the city's five boroughs. This self-guided tour is of the NoMad & Flatiron.
This duo of neighborhoods is defined by the rich architectural legacy of beautiful gilded-age Cast-Iron, Second Empire, and French Renaissance Revival mansions and commercial buildings constructed in the late 19th century just as the area was becoming New York City’s social and cultural hub. As a district with irregular boundaries, the central location of both the iconic Flatiron Building with its novel triangular shape, and Madison Square Park to the building’s immediate north with its must-see, year-round art installations, helps anchor the area. These neighborhoods are bustling with energy, filled with residents, hotels, noteworthy restaurants, museums, international design firms, and global home decor showrooms. In this district, design is visible. Journey through them and see for yourself.
