Gramarcy Park is on the East side of Manhattan, just south of Murray Hill and north of Greenwich Village. Chelsea and the Garment District are on the West and Stuyvesant Town on the East. There are mostly pre war buildings, and historic brownstones, with some new buildings being constructed. Gramarcy is one Manhattan neighborhood that has one thing you will not find in many parts of Manhattan, and that is a private park, which only the residents have a key too. By, law it must be opened to the public once and year or it will loose its private status, but for the rest of the year, it is locked up tight. Gramarcy Park is just a walk from the clubs and art galleries of Greenwich Village, and a short trip to the north to the business district if Midtown Manhattan and the Theater District.
Third Avenue is the major shopping area, as it is for its entire length, from north to south.
The most expensive real estate are converted lofts, which are now penthouses and if you have a view of the park, that adds up to. In Gramarcy Park, the prices can change depending on the street. The further away you are from the Midtown Tunnel, the more you are likely to pay.
