MoMath Meets NoMad

On December 15, the Museum of Mathematics made its debut as the country's only national space dedicated to math. MoMath is also a trendsetter in real estate. Until 2009, when the Ace Hotel opened its doors, there wasn't much happening in the area between 26th and 30th Streets, Park Avenue and Broadway. Now it has its own acronym: NoMad, for North of Madison Square Park. MoMath joins the Ace and the recently opened NoMad Hotel in what's becoming one of Manhattan's newest up-and-coming nabes.
