Gramercy Park

Gramercy Park is a small, fenced-in private park which is at the core of the neighborhood.  The approximately 2 acre park is one of only two private parks in New York City; only people residing around the park who pay an annual fee have a key,and the public is not generally allowed in – although the sidewalks of the streets around the park are a popular jogging, strolling and dog-walking route.Whether the neigborhood is called “Gramercy Park” or “Gramercy”, it is generally considered to be a quiet and safe area.  East 19th Street between Third Avenue and Irving is labeled “Block Beautiful” for its wide array of architecture and pristine aesthetic.  Townhouses with generous backyards and smaller apartments alike coincide in a collage of architecture in Gramercy Park. The largest private house in the neighborhood, a 42-room mansion on Gramercy Park South, sold for $7 million in 1993.The quiet streets perpendicular to Irving Place have maintained their status as fashionable residential blocks reminiscent of London’s West End. In 1912, a multiple dwelling planned specifically for bachelors appeared at 52 Irving Place. This handsome Colonial Revival style structure with suites of rooms that lacked kitchen facilities was one of a small group of New York apartment houses planned for single men in the early years of the 20th century.Calling it “a Victorian gentleman who has refused to die”, Charlotte Devree in the New York Times said that “There is nothing else quite like Gramercy Park in the country.”
