Another New York City neighborhood named and defined by its mainstay feature, The Gramercy Park.
This downtown neighborhood feels more like a quiet neighborhood than the typical fast paced lifestyle that New York City is well known for. The neighborhood spans from 23rd St on the North, 14th Street to the South, Park Avenue South to the West and First Avenue to the East.
Gramercy Park itself is found between 21st and 20th Streets and Gramercy Park West and East, approximately between Park Avenue South and Third Avenue. Irving Place a very notable and famous street starts at the south end of Gramercy Park on 20th St. Irving Place is home to some of the better restaurants, cafes, and entertainment in the neighborhood.
Real estate is diverse in the neighborhood. Surrounding Gramercy Park are a number of historically significant town houses and co-op and condominium residences. Views of the park are highly sought after and with the limited frontage to the park, apartments are highly desired.
What makes Gramercy so desirable is its relative close location to a number of subways, walking distance to Union Square, the Flatiron District and Midtown offices, restaurants and nightlife. The calm nature that the park brings with it, spreads itself to the many tree lined streets and pristine architecture in the neighborhood.
