Never been to the park, but Brotherhood Synagogue is across the south gate. This synagogue is active and welcoming. Originally a Quaker meeting hall it has made the transformation to a synagogue while maintaining some of the original architectural and structural touches, a progressive synagogue grounded in tradition, this place of worship is a spiritual home to a diverse but...

That's what makes a mega city a metropolis. Seconds away from traffic and busy meetings, I do like to sit down, have an espresso on the go and listen to the wheeze of sparrows.

This is one of only two private parks in the city. It is a small, beautiful park but only the owners of the 39 surrounding structures have keys to get in. It is unique and in a beautiful neighborhood.

This is a quiet, picturesque old neighborhood for a morning walk. Stand on the north side of the park and you can take a photo down Lexington Avenue, including the Chrysler Building. Do watch where you step; not everyone cleans up after Fido.

Gramercy Park is both a specific park and the neighborhood around it. Mr Ruggles, who created the park and the earliest buildings surrounding it, used the private park, based on the British model of parks, as an incentive to get residents to move uptown (at the time) to live here. The park itself is an oasis of calm and is... More

The concept of a private park, especially in a place as crowded as New York City, is alien to me. But was staying at the Gramercy Park Hotel, so availed myself of the privilege. Very pretty. My 1% moment over, I returned to the hotel.

Wow to live here, and to have access to the park, the park gates are locked and only residents have a key!!! To have the key I think you've made it!!!!

After staying at Gramercy Park Hotel (which is a unique and wonderful place in & of itself) my daughter & I spent some time in Gramercy Park. It's a sweet refuge from the big city. It was nice to stroll through this small but meaningful piece of property. You can feel the history as you walk through. The flowers were... More

This is a private fenced park shared amongst a privileged 383 key holders. It's actually an excellent example of shared resources given the territoriality of private property. This communal yard is rather unique & worth a look if your in the neighbourhood.
