November News Roundup

The weather may be getting colder, but the Flatiron District continues to be hot with media attention highlighting restaurants, health and wellness businesses, public transit, and BID events. Stay up to date with the latest Flatiron District news with the BID’s monthly roundup of notable highlights.

  • November saw two new exciting additions to the neighborhood food scene. French-Italian restaurant Italienne, located at 19 West 24th Street, serves small plates and a la carte dishes inspired by the flavors of Southern France and Northern Italy (via Zagat), while Japanese-inspired, London-based noodle chain Wagamama opened its US flagship restaurant across from Madison Square Park at 210 Fifth Avenue (via Thrillist). In other restaurant news, Eleven Madison Park, Junoon, and the NoMad Restaurant have all retained their respective star ratings for the 2017 edition of the prestigious Michelin Guide (via Eater).
  • The Flatiron District was dubbed “the mecca for athleisure” in a New York Times profile on the rise of athleisure apparel. The article highlighted several local businesses including Bandier, Sweaty Betty, and Athleta. The neighborhood’s reputation as a hub for health and wellness continued to grow in November with the opening of Inscape, a 5,000-square-foot meditation center at 45 West 21st Street (via Vogue).
  • Those traveling crosstown to and from the Flatiron District had reason to cheer this month with the announcement of M23 Select Bus Service (SBS) along 23rd Street. M23 SBS was jointly developed by DOT and the MTA, with the goals of providing faster and more reliable bus service, safer streets for pedestrians and drivers, and maintaining traffic flow (via ABC-7 NY).
  • November was an exciting month for the Flatiron BID with the unveiling of LOT’s Flatiron Sky-Line on the North Flatiron Public Plaza on Monday, November 21st. Flatiron Sky-Line was the winner of the Flatiron Public Plaza Holiday Design Competition, and will remain on view through the holidays as part of the BID’s annual “23 Days of Flatiron Cheer” programming (via DNAinfo and Curbed).
