Located between 18th and 23rd Streets to the east of Park Avenue, Gramercy Park can take you back in time. It’s a neighborhood of elegant brownstones, quaint hotels and venerable restaurants that once served celebrities like Fiorello LaGuardia and Dorothy Parker. Not every block of this diverse neighborhood is historic; it borders some of New York’s trendiest spots, such as the ultra-cool restaurants of Park Avenue South. But you’re never far from Old New York when you’re in Gramercy Park.
- Gramercy Park is named for the only private park in Manhattan: a two-acre square at the end of Irving Place and Lexington Avenue.
- Only residents of the surrounding townhouses and Gramercy Park Hotel have keys to the park, but it lends a feeling of genteel privacy to the entire neighborhood.
- The area has one of New York’s highest concentrations of landmark-protected buildings.
- A number of restaurants, from casual to elegant, cater to local residents.
- It’s a great neighborhood for strolling, as traffic is diverted to surrounding avenues.
- The overall effect is of a calm and charming enclave.
Subway connections will take you to Midtown, Wall Street, the Upper East Side and the Upper West Side. Walkers can reach Midtown in 15 minutes.
