A lovely and largely uncrowded park that's perfect for the midday stroll. Be sure to check out the statue of famed theater actor Edwin Booth in the guise of Hamlet.

Another Good Option

Gramercy Park is another good option to experience. During my last trip we rented some bikes and explored every section of the park and its surroundings. Very fun experience.

Located just one block east of Park Ave this little gem is a wonderfully collection of beautifully manicured landscapes, nice sculptures surrounded by lovely houses with facades worthy of architecture reverence materials. Lovely park not to be missed while in the area.

I live in the neighborhood and can go inside, however I frankly prefer the park from the outside. The locals tend to be quite territorial as far as the park is concerned and there is often quite a bit of in fighting among my fellow neighbors. Because of this and because the park is not open to the general public,... More

This park is one of the only private parks in New York and the only one in Manhattan. To have access you must have a key and there are only about 300 in circulation. If you stay with the Gramercy Park Hotel, you can access the park. Otherwise you must own real estate facing the park and pay a yearly... More

Gramercy Park is one of the most special spots in all of New York. It is a small area at Lexington Avenue and 20th Street. The streets are canopied with big, old trees. The area is beautiful during the day but my favorite time to be there is at night - it is enchanting. The park itself is fenced and... More

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.

I'd been there before at night based on a friends recommendation, but it was closed to I couldn't see the art. Still it was fun to "happen upon it". The art is globes filled with interesting objects. Not sure who put... More

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.
