Gramercy Park

Quiet Good transportation Young crowd

Few neighborhoods are as lovely as Gramercy, arguably the most charming area of New York City.

Situated between Murray Hill and the East Village, Gramercy has a relaxed, old-money type of feel. It’s no wonder, as in pre-civil war New York the brownstones and mansions facing the park were the poshest places to live in the city. Former New York governors and presidential candidates have lived in Gramercy, as did young Theodore Roosevelt.
