Gramercy is a charming village with a private park in the center of its cozy and old fashion atmosphere.

Gramercy began as swamp land surrounding a farm known as “Gramercy farm.” In 1831 developers brought the land, drained the swamp and moved about a million horse cart loads of earth to landscape Gramercy Square.

This square was deeded to the 66 parcels of land surrounding it as their private park with a key for their residence only. History is carved into the very architecture of Gramercy, where New York’s first apartment buildings and co-ops were built nestled next to nineteenth century brownstones and carriage houses. Numerous charitable institutes, past and present, are located in this affluent neighborhood. The Brotherhood Synagogue on Gramercy park south served as an underground railroad before the civil war and today the Calvary Church on the North side has a food pantry that opens its doors once a week. While much of New York City has experienced great change Gramercy remains the same with its pristine townhouses, large back yards and its apartment buildings with the largest topping off at 20 stories. Peace, quiet and a small village feel, make this one attractive neighborhood to call home.
