About Gramercy Park

Gramercy Park is where you can find some old-world charm in the middle of Manhattan. It encompasses the area between 14th and 23rd Streets, generally starting at Park Avenue South and extended east to 1st Avenue. These are rough guidelines, as the exact boundaries of the neighborhood do not all consist of straight lines. This is likely because Gramercy Park has the designation of being a true historic district; when it has been expanded to include notable buildings nearby, it has had to officially apply. The overall area is relatively quiet and peaceful. There are brownstones, townhouses, buildings with apartments of various sizes, and large single-family homes with backyards. The smaller apartments can command fairly high rents because of the location in the heart of Manhattan, and the higher-end listings are home to many celebrities and dignitaries. Subway stops on Park and 14th as well as bus stops on 2nd and 3rd make it convenient to travel to different parts of the city.

The name of the neighborhood is the same as that of the local park. Gramercy Park is a private park under shared ownership by people who own the buildings that surround it. Physical keys are handed out to the owners, since security is quite tight, those who have permission to enter can be sure to enjoy a peaceful experience. Peter's Field, Augustus St. Gardens Playground, and Stuyvesant Square Park are local open-air spots that are open to the public.

There are seemingly hundreds of places to eat on the neighborhood streets and surrounding blocks. The intersection of 14th and 2nd Avenue anchors one part of Gramercy Park that has a number of ethnic restaurants and bars. Many fine-dining establishments are located a bit north, closer to Park Avenue and 23rd. While some of the restaurants and bars are on the side streets, many of them are situated along the more major thoroughfares.
