Morning

Rise and shine. Start your day by taking a plunge in 88 & 90 Lex’s 60-foot swimming pool. If a few dozen lengths doesn’t wake you up, then the pool’s ambiance—drenched in natural light from the double-height atrium above—will. Soothe your muscles in the whirlpool, followed by a stop in the steam room. Then, put in a couple of miles on the treadmill in the fully equipped fitness center.

Exercises completed, it’s time to take a well-earned shower in your private bathroom with heated floors, before whipping up a light breakfast in your open-plan kitchen, replete with premium millwork and bold stone surfaces. It’s easy to keep a well-stocked fridge in NoMad, as you’re within walking distance of Kalustyan’s, Eataly, Whole Foods, and countless other foodie-friendly shops.

Mid-Morning

Time to step out into the effervescent ambiance of NoMad in the summer. If you’re hoping to add an extra personal touch to your luxury condo, stop by New York Design Center and peruse the antique home furnishings at your leisure—from sculptural leather rock sofas crafted by Gerard Van Den Berg in the 1970s to the French decadence of the Elle W Collection.

If you aren’t in the mood to shop, go ahead and take a stroll in Madison Square Park, enjoying this neatly bordered historic urban oasis. Grab an iced cold brew from Gasoline Alley Coffee for the ideal pick-me-up.

Lunch

The dining scene in NoMad could almost overwhelm you with choices. For refined dining, Park Avenue A/W & S/S makes for a distinguished option, with its soft-lit, tree-ensconced interior and a menu that boasts the inimitable Park Avenue Steak Tartare, made with foie gras and Perigord truffle.

For food with soul, opt for Blue Smoke’s baby-back ribs served with collard greens or side of buttermilk biscuits. As for dessert, why not take it home with you? Buy one or two boxes of Penelope’s sour cream raspberry coffee cakes and see how long you can make them last…

Heading Home

It’s time to wind your way through NoMad’s beautiful streets back to 88 & 90 Lex. You’ll never tire of entering its high-ceilinged, attended lobby, or of the 24-hour concierge service that is always ready to assist you.

With a few hours to spare before dinner, it’s a great time to explore the rest of 88 & 90 Lex’s amenities. Recline in the building’s private cinema, with its top-of-the-line HD screen and surround sound, and then relax in the Residents’ Lounge with a magazine. There’s a pool table, too—ideal for friendly rivalries with your NoMad neighbors. To top off the day, pour yourself a glass of vino and lounge around, or head up to the newly completed rooftop with a good book and relax.
