For much of Manhattan's history the NoMad (North of Madison Square Park) neighborhood was once part of a notorious red light district called the Tenderloin. Today this small neighborhood is cleaned up and trendy, with new development and nightlife bringing in a crowd of creatives and professionals. Its streets are lined with elegant stone and brick apartment buildings, giant residential towers, small retail shops, and offices. In between you'll find cute cafes, trendy restaurants, and upscale hotels. Its central location makes it easy to get anywhere in Manhattan.

NoMad is bordered on the north by Koreatown, on the east by Rose Hill, on the south by Flatiron District, and on the west by Chelsea.
