The New York Observer Calls Madison Square Park ‘The Other Central Park”

Monday April 28, 2014

The New York Observer recently published an article praising Madison Square Park as 'The Other Central Park'

The New York Observer recently published an article praising the transformation of Madison Square Park in recent years. “The Other Central Park: Madison Square Park’s Residential Renaissance” underscores the influx of new residences and small businesses in the NoMad neighborhood surrounding the park.

Authored by Roland Li, the article points out some of the great advantages of NoMad. “Numerous new residential properties have opened, signaling the next wave of change for the venerable neighborhood… the neighborhood’s central location is a major asset, with subway lines connecting to all parts of Manhattan. Its proximity to Grand Central Terminal and Penn Station is also a boon for commercial tenants. It has all the Downtown cachet of Tribeca, in other words, with none of the inconvenience.”

Madison Square Park has long been a historical hotbed for the cultural elite. In the Gilded Age, the area was home to society families (Edith Warton and Winston Churchill’s mother, for instance) and later became known for the creative outpouring of Tin Pan Alley musicians. Li’s article mentions the return of celebrity residents: Chelsea Clinton, Jeff Gordon, Rupert Murdoch, Tom Brady and Gisele. Li also points attention towards the success of local restaurants and eateries: Eataly, Eleven Madison Park and Shake Shack.

We’re glad so many are finally recognizing what we have long known — NoMad is one of New York’s most convenient, energizing neighborhoods in the city. For more information on our office spaces near Madison Square Park, head over to our properties page.
