A local who has chosen to set up shop in NoMad.
Audrey Gelman is the Co-founder and CEO of The Wing, a stunning and stylish space for professional women: part club, part networking hub, part urban retreat. The Wing is quintessential New York: both relaxed and sophisticated. Gelman is a harmonious hybrid herself. She integrates pragmatism with style, politics with sociability. The Wing, which opened in October 2016, was instantly successful. It has since become a second home to some of the city’s most intriguing women.
CEO AND CO-FOUNDER OF THE WING
Monumental Richard Serra sculptures, glittering Damien Hirst skulls, playful (and cynical) Jeff Koons balloon dogs. Edgy, de rigueur, and renowned contemporary art is just a few blocks west.
the whitney museum
Founded in 1930 with the radical mission of collecting only American art, the Whitney showcases the best work in the country, from Alexander Calder’s vibrant mobiles to Bill Viola’s haunting videos. The museum moved to its current downtown location in May 2015. The Whitney’s signature Biennial exhibit is always a vortex of critical controversy and artistic innovation. Visit the Whitney to take the temperature of the cultural zeitgeist.
“Compared to other neighborhoods, NoMad is a relaxed, quieter, and more sophisticated place.”
