Gramercy Park is one of New York's most historic and unique neighborhoods. Centrally located on the East Side, residents have the convenience of living downtown (Soho, Noho and the Village are just blocks away) coupled with a sophistication generally reserved for the toniest uptown neighborhoods. This pristine area extends from 14th to 24th Street between Fifth and First Avenues. With many prewar and post war buildings, the true elegance of Gramercy Park is displayed by the beautiful 19th century townhouses, Victorian brownstones, and prewar buildings surrounding the park - built by such famous architects such as Emery Roth and Calvert Vaux. Gramercy Park gets its name from the only private park in the city. Key access is needed and is given to those who live on the perimeter of the park.
Known as the oldest residential neighborhood, Gramercy is also home to many fabulous restaurants, trendy nightspots and lots of great shopping. Given its many charms and convenience, this safe, tight-knit neighborhood draws young professionals and older residents alike.
