Gramercy Park

Boundaries: 14th Street to 23rd Street and Park Avenue South to the East River.

Sandwiched between bustling Union Square and Murray Hill, this residential neighborhood is considered one of the safer, quieter areas of Manhattan. In 1831 Gramercy Park was designed and today is the city’s only private park. Residents around the park pay a fee annually for access. The area all around the park is a historic zone with elaborate brownstones, Victorian style architecture including some mansions. Gramercy has quiet, tree lined streets once home to historic icons Theodore Roosevelt, Oscar Wilde and John F. Kennedy.

Gramercy also has a vibrant nightlife including live music at The Fillmore, city renowned restaurants & Pete’s Tavern (the city’s oldest standing saloon)
