Service Description

Not a heavy metal band. In the late 19th /early 20th century, the neighborhood now known as NoMad (“North of Madison Square") was a world-famous red light district filled with saloons, music halls, gambling dens, and houses of ill-repute. The area has been expunged by the passage of time and a succession of reformers, but there are still remnants of its licentious past, if you know where to look, including: • The alley where American popular music was born. • The hotels where Diamond Jim Brady, Lillian Russell, Samuel Clemens, Oscar Wilde, and Nikola Tesla hung out. • A gay bathhouse with a tragic history. • A police station disguised as a medieval castle. • A music hall with a scandalous VIP backroom. • The headquarters of a powerful political cult. • And the flower district where you could purchase more than just orchids.
