Gramercy, NY

New York
Gramercy which includes street scenes

Quiet elegance is key in this residential neighborhood on Manhattan’s east side, with leafy streets, historic architecture and notable arts venues and restaurants.

The Gramercy neighborhood has a peaceful and fundamentally residential character as well as noteworthy attractions. Wander along the green blocks lined with landmarked mansions, the ideal backdrop for an imaginative journey into Manhattan’s genteel past. Imagine yourself as a Gramercy resident while visiting notable restaurants and arts venues.

Start at Gramercy Park, which centers the neighborhood geographically, setting its elegant tone. Planned in the 19th century along with the surrounding residences as a well-to-do destination neighborhood, the park symbolizes Gramercy’s enduring exclusivity. Only key holders are allowed access to the park itself. Passing pedestrians get the benefit of its ample greenery. Cross streets in the Gramercy Park Historic District present ivy-covered Italianate and Greek Revival townhouses in quiet rows. Watch for enchanting architectural details. Enjoy a break at Stuyvesant Square, another historic public park with pleasant seating and fountains.

To experience the glamorous Gramercy life without the residential price tag, eat at one of the gracious restaurants scattered throughout the neighborhood. Stop at the Rose Bar in the exclusive Gramercy Hotel for an inventive cocktail or try the Roman-style trattoria, Maialino. Gramercy Tavern is one of the city’s most famous fine-dining establishments, while the humbler Pete’s Tavern is one of its oldest continually operating bars. Lady Mendl’s Tea Salon offers a Victorian-style high tea service in a secluded, silk-draped salon on Irving Place.

Theater, arts, and music have long traditions in Gramercy, home to The Players, an exclusive members-only club for theater artists, and The National Arts Club, which hosts occasional public exhibitions and events. Head to the Vineyard Theater, an off-Broadway venue for new plays and musicals, The Stand for low-key comedy shows, and the Jazz Standard for intimate concerts. Irving Plaza and Gramercy Theater host big-name popular music groups.

Gramercy is a short walk north from bustling Union Square and east of the Flatiron district. The neighborhood is at its most enchanting on a sunny day, but delightful in any weather.
