Gramercy Park

A neighborhood known for its exclusionary status, Gramercy Park is home to the classy, chic, and sophisticated New Yorker. Typical residents include Hollywood actors to Broadway bigwigs, and the city’s most limited-access park. With the restaurant hub Irving Place a stones throw away, the historic Gramercy Park Hotel in the area, and the city’s oldest buildings #34 and #36 still standing strong, Gramercy Park is unlike any other neighborhood in the city.
