Nomad

Living in Nomad Just above Madison Square Park, you’ll find the small and trendy Nomad neighborhood. Like many New York neighborhoods, Nomad is an abbreviation—it stands for “North of Madison Square Park.” While Nomad first got its name in just 1999, it’s been around much longer than that. Residents started moving into brownstones in the area in 1686, the same time Madison Square Park was opened. Today, you’ll still see historic brownstones in this neighborhood, but there are also many luxury condos with modern amenities.

Many of the buildings are older, but in recent years, some new modern developments have been put in, showing that Gramercy has something for everyone.

Financial District

Living in the Financial District The Financial District—or, as many residents call it, FiDi—may be famous for its sleek skyscrapers that house top companies, but the area also has plenty of apartments and condos available. The area is popular with professionals who work on or around Wall Street. Residents also like how easy it is to travel to and from this area—many major subway lines stop at the Fulton Street Station, and you can also get ferries to Governors’ Island or Brooklyn. If you like the idea of living in the commercial heart of New York City, the Financial District is a good choice for you.

Lower East Side

Living in the Lower East Side The vibrant Lower East Side neighborhood was once a hub for New York City’s newest residents. Many Europeans immigrated here in the 19th and early 20th centuries and set up shops and restaurants. Today, many of the businesses started by the Lower East Side’s first residents are still around, and they often sit next to modern, chic boutiques or tiny hole-in-the-wall bars. These contrasts give the Lower East Side its unique character.

West Village

Living in the West Village The peaceful West Village neighborhood is famous for its historic brownstones and winding, tree-lined streets that are filled with cute cafes and highly-rated restaurants.

Upper West Side

Living in the Upper West Side The Upper West Side attracts intellectuals, artists, and authors who love how close the neighborhood is to many of Manhattan’s most iconic cultural sites.

In the bottom of the neighborhood, close to bustling Columbus Circle, you’ll find many high-rise luxury condos. As you travel farther north, though, you’ll start seeing more preserved, pre-war brownstones on streets that are so quiet, you’ll forget that you’re in Manhattan. At the top of the neighborhood, you’ll find more affordable but still lovely places to live. The Upper West Side is a wonderful place for those looking for a quieter neighborhood that still has easy access to the rest of Manhattan.

The neighborhood has gorgeous buildings in a wide variety of architectural styles—there’s everything from Art Deco building to lovely brownstones. While the Upper East Side may have a reputation for being on the pricier side, pre-war walk-ups near the East River can actually be quite affordable. These buildings often attract younger professionals.

NOHO

It's also home to some of the most famous tourist attractions in New York City.

This chic neighborhood is one of the most sought after in the city.

Chinatown
