It may be in the middle of the Big Apple, but Gramercy feels private and secluded. Tree-lined streets converge at this neighborhood’s famously exclusive park—its gates remain locked unless you know someone (or are someone) who has a key. Although Gramercy’s green space isn’t open to everyone, the charming bars, bodegas, and cafes sprinkled throughout the surrounding neighbourhood will gladly welcome your patronage.See places to stay Save this neighbourhood
The Good Life in Gramercy Park
The neighbourhood is remarkable mainly because of its proximity to Union Square, terrific public transportation, and the East River Greenway. We're one express subway stop from Chinatown, two from Times Square, and a 10 minute walk from the best Greenmarket on the East Coast."
Getting Out in Gramercy Park
One of New York City's best neighbourhoods - the perfect combination of calmness, convenience, and a quiet place that's two minutes away from all the action!"
Inside the Exclusive Garden
Gramercy Park is the only privately held park in Manhattan. The keys are available for an annual fee to a limited number of owners who live around the park. This key is needed to enter AND exit the park."

Jacob Krupnick is a director and photographer from Brooklyn. In 2011, he released the feature-length dance film "Girl Walk // All Day", a non-stop music video shot entirely in the streets of NYC. Since then, he’s spent his time creating one-of-a-kind, immersive screening experiences all over the world. Shooting for Airbnb was a great excuse for Jacob to wander the city with a camera in hand, thinking about what best defines the feel of a neighbourhood.
