When looking for the perfect place to stay in NYC, coming to a decision can be a bit overwhelming. Manhattan luxury apartments are scattered all throughout the city… where to begin?
While it’s true that all areas offer something unique, there are some defining features of the Gramercy neighborhood that makes it the ultimate destination point for those seeking the perfect NYC rental.
In this post, we’ll cover a few reasons why Gramercy is the hidden gem of New York City.
Perhaps the most unique feature of Gramercy is its location. The neighborhood will make you feel as if you’ve escaped the hustle-bustle of the city. But in fact, you’re smack in the middle.
Sitting between East 14th and East 23rd, the neighborhood is as close to Midtown Manhattan is it is to the trendy neighborhoods to the south, like Noho, Soho, and Bowery. This accessibility puts some of the most intriguing parts of the city in your back pocket.
Within short walking distance are some of the most famous parks in the city – Madison Square Park, Union Square, and of course, the exclusive Gramercy Park.
Although keys to Gramercy Park are only given to buildings directly facing the park, the serenity and peace of the surrounding block are tangible. Whether inside the park or in the famed streets surrounding it, locals enjoy daily strolls with their neighbors and dogs.
For those traveling to Manhattan for work, Gramercy once again delivers. Thanks to its prime location, Gramercy is one of the safest bets for ensuring a short commute. Midtown and downtown offices can be reached in under 20 minutes, whether by nearby subway stations, taxis, or rideshares.
We hinted at this earlier. Gramercy really is a hidden gem among the high-rises of New York’s concrete jungle.
Just a few blocks away are some of New York’s most famous skyscrapers. For example, the Flatiron Building on 5th Ave. or the Empire State Building on W 34th. You can’t find a low-key neighborhood that achieves proximity to these landmarks quite like Gramercy.
In the other direction, Union Square is just as close, where again the fast-paced nature of the city is ever so prominent. But within the confines of Gramercy, you would never know just how close you are. In this sense, you get the best of both worlds – close proximity to the busy nature of NYC but slightly removed from it.
Seeing as it has long established itself as one of New York’s more prestigious neighborhoods, Gramercy offers a glimpse into both new and old luxury.
Townhouses in the neighborhood range in age, with some — like our very own Gramercy Townhouse — having been recently renovated, while others strive to maintain the vintage charm of the city.
Both offer something special, but one thing is certain – the appeal is felt whether you’re staying there or simply passing through. The mix of old and new brings a diverse element to the streets of Gramercy, and it’s something any visitor should make a point of experiencing for themselves.
