No matter how old or established they may be, New York City neighborhoods are in a constant state of change. With each new chapter, boundaries shift and new architecture and commerce arrive. The Manhattan neighborhood known as Nomad (for its location north of Madison Square Park) is a fine example. Nomad became a top residential choice, as well as an international dining destination and an all-around rising star, at the beginning of the 21st century. The neighborhood stretches from approximately 25th Street to 30th Street between Sixth and Lexington Avenues, but the bounty that surrounds it in the neighborhoods of Chelsea, Midtown, Union Square, and Gramercy knows no bounds.

The penthouse at 66 Madison Avenue is one of those unusual apartments that resembles nothing so much as a charming cabin in the sky, surrounded by 700 square feet of outdoor terrace space. This 1,100-square-foot one-bedroom co-op–located in the building’s original rooftop machine room–is perched atop a 1918 Beaux Arts building in the popular Nomad neighborhood. 6sqft featured the rooftop aerie when the previous owner, designer and fashion PR exec Leslie Klotz, listed it for $2.450 million in 2016; it sold for $2,260,000 in early 2017. House Beautiful called the light-filled home, now asking $2.5 million, “a wonderful mashup of Manhattan and Montmartre.”

In addition, two bedrooms and two baths, endless closet space, and a laundry room are just a few more of the luxuries found in this modern aerie, which was featured in Architectural Digest.

A new public art installation opened in the Flatiron Public Plaza as part of the neighborhood’s yearly “23 Days of Flatiron Cheer” event. This year’s artwork, called Interwoven, comes from design firm Atelier Cho Thompson and features colorful interactive archways.
