Welcome to Flatiron/Gramercy/Nomad

Connecting historic with the new, energetic neighborhoods emerging in Manhattan
Practically overlapping, these three neighborhoods come with their own unique attitude to the New York scene.

Local Lifestyle

Flatiron is defined as a central location — it acts as a passageway between downtown and midtown, placing its residents in the prime location to do anything and go anywhere, on foot or on wheels. With a wealth of high-rise office buildings, Flatiron is a lively hubbub of activity throughout the week and much quieter on the weekends, making the neighborhood perfect for relaxing. NoMad is the place to be for those seeking vibrant experiences every single day of the week, while Gramercy is characterized by exclusive, quiet streets full of stunning residential buildings and historic homes. Overall, the area is invigorated and dynamic, full of magnetic energy only emerging neighborhoods in New York can understand.

Dining, Shopping, and Entertainment

While all the neighborhoods are poised to allow for easy commutes just about anywhere else in the city, there’s hardly any need to leave the area due to the wealth of opportunity and fun right in the neighborhoods, from Gramercy’s tourist-free restaurant scene to NoMad’s nightlife to Flatiron’s classic NYC shopper’s paradise.
Exemplifying the area’s unique emphasis on the arts and culture, Fotografiska is more than a locally-renowned restaurant.

Called a flavor-forward bar, the world of elegant gastropubs is crowned by the NoMad institution Breslin Bar, full of elevated burger experiences and delicious brews.
Considered something of a historical and cultural hub of Midtown Manhattan, Ace Hotel features great events in addition to a casually refreshing lobby bar. A Michelin-starred Spanish restaurant, Casa Mono & Bar Jamon is a must-visit location, while there’s no better place to grab your breakfast bagel than Black Seed Bagels.

The oldest operating bar & restaurant in all of New York City, Pete’s Tavern is a Gramercy landmark of vintage bar space serving burgers and Italian fare to locals and history-lovers alike.
