The holidays in New York evoke the glamour of winter celebrations like nowhere else, and 88 & 90 Lex puts you right at the intersection of twinkling trees, elegant celebrations, and some of the best shopping in the city. Just outside the doors of these luxury NoMad condos, the retail environment actually becomes an extension of the art and culture that take center stage in this neighborhood. Holiday magic in NoMad has begun, and there is so much to do, see, eat, and shop for.
This time of year, nearby Madison Square Park combines the quaintness of a snow-covered fairy-tale village with the cultural heft of an art gallery, with exhibitions of work by today’s leading artists installed in the park alongside the lights and trees. From now until April 2019, you can immerse yourself in the work of Arlene Shechet, one of the world’s leading sculptors. For a few season’s greetings, the Madison Square Holiday Tree will be a welcoming presence throughout the holidays.
