The city’s oldest residential neighborhood, Gramercy Park is situated between Union Square and 24th Street, from Fifth to First Avenues. Beautiful nineteenth-century townhouses fill the streets, and those that surround New York City’s last private park are some of the most sought after spaces in the world. Luxury high-rises and renovated warehouse loft spaces also make up a portion of this quaint area. Well preserved in its history, Gramercy Park also has all of the conveniences of today and is attractive to both young professionals and families alike. Beyond the private park itself, the area neighbors Union Square and its wonderful open air markets, and includes Irving Place, home to some of the most treasured taverns and restaurants in New York.
