Gramercy Park itself is a small, private, gated park at Lexington Avenue and 21st Street. Only residents surrounding the small park have keys, though guests at the adjacent Gramercy Park Hotel also have guest access during their stay. It is a lovely, old-fashioned type pf park, in the style of an early-20th century English park: quaint, picturesque and beautiful.

Best seen from the inside if you are a local resident or hotel (Gramercy Park) and access to a key, but even from the fence looking inwards, it is a wonderful park, so beautiful and well maintained.

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
