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.

Fantastic place to sit and contemplate life or just take a breather from a hectic day. Gorgeous, quiet, uncrowded . . . peaceful.

We had a friend who very graciously invited us to visit the park. It is absolutely beautiful. No wonder the keys are so coveted. Wish we would have had a a few hours to just sit and mediate. Another unique corner that makes NYC such an amazing place.

A small but beautiful park that is so well kept. It is a closed park available only to local residences and guests of the Gramercy Hotel but you can get a good feel by standing at the fences. Such a great oasis in the middle of New York.

Gramercy Park is closed to the public; only people dwelling around it get the key, for which they pay through their nose (those paying through their nose to stay in the now also closed Gramercy Park Hotel would also temporarily get access to the park). ln the middle of the park is a statue of noted Shakespearean actor Edwin Booth,...

This park is small and frequently locked (closed to the public). It is comfortable and relaxing. It is a throw back to an era long gone. A nice place to sit and think.

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
