Gramercy is generally recognized as lying between Park Avenue South and the East River between 14th to 23rd Street.
Gramercy is a U.S. historic district renowned for its nineteenth century buildings of distinctive architectural style. Lovely pre-war townhouses surround the neighborhood’s namesake, Gramercy Park, an exclusive green space lying at the district’s heart. The park is accessible to the residents of the neighboring luxury co-ops, although it requires them to pay for their keys.
Gramercy remains, however, one of the city’s most accessible neighborhoods, and one of the most beautiful and historically rich. Gramercy, close to “hospital row” on 1st avenue, is primarily residential, but is in close proximity to the dining, shopping and entertainment of Union Square, Greenwich Village and the Flatiron District.
