NoMad is New York City’s youngest district (With the name appearing first around 1999) and has become one of the most exciting in recent years. With Chelsea on its west border and Flatiron District on it’s south, this central location has seen plenty of growth through the last decade, putting it on locals’ and visitors’ radars. The neighborhood has kept its low-key appeal, but now with a mix of high-end.
Today, its also a growing hub for creatives of all kinds, from modern architecture and interior design firms, to visual artists and boutique fashion designers. For cuisine, you can find yourself grabbing a sandwich a the new Melt Shop location to sitting down for an all-night tasting menu on the NoMad Hotel Rooftop with chefs Will Guidara and Daniel Humm. So if you’re hungry it doesn’t matter if you want something casual or gourmet, you’ll be in foodie heaven either way. The expanding appeal of the area has brought in a selection of boutique hotels to accommodate the increasing visitors , with the famed Ace Hotel already a modern landmark.
Our mission is to capture this special period of time in this fast-changing neighborhood and its inhabitants to share their visual story. Our MySuites&Co Design Collective has teamed up with fashion photographer Ricky Cohete who shares our passion for the inspiring and high-energy NoMad District. We will be sharing our photography through our blog, Tumblr, Twitter and Instagram, though the hashtag #CrossingNoMad.
