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.learn more about this neighborhood

The fast paced energy of the city calms considerably in the residential neighborhood of Gramercy Park. Dignified Gramercy Park, named for its 1831 gated garden ringed by historic buildings and clubs, is an early example of the city's best creative urban planning. Just north of the park is Ian Schrager's reincarnation of the Gramercy Park Hotel on Lexington Avenue.
South of the park, going north to south from 14th Street, is Irving Place, a short street honoring Washington Irving, which feels calm, green, and has a combination of old and new eateries, stores, and architecture.
Pete's Tavern, on Irving Place since 1864, maintains its claim as the oldest original bar in the city. Two famous writers, O. Henry (Gift of the Magi) and Ludwig Bemelmans (Madeline), were "inspired" here, probably by the amazing eggnog or Pete's House Ale.
