GRAMERCY PARK NEIGHBOURHOOD

At first glance, private and secluded, Gramercy Park’s charming appeal thrives in its multitude of bars and cafés. This is the New York (NYC) of the literati, where the Rockefellers and Roosevelts once had vacation townhouses behind the neighborhood’s elegant Italianate façades. Its tree-lined streets have attracted a multitude of personalities, from Oscar Wilde to John Steinbeck. Around every corner, you’ll relish in the legend and history of the buildings…not to mention you’re just a stone’s throw from one of Manhattan’s premier shopping districts. The field-to-fork Union Square Market is a few blocks from the Gramercy Vacation Apartments, which attracts locals and visitors from all over the globe.
