Gramercy Park is the name of both a small, fenced-in private park and the surrounding neighborhood that is referred to also as Gramercy, in the borough of Manhattan in New York City, United States. The approximately 2-acre (0.81 ha) park, located in the Gramercy Park Historic District, is one of two private parks in New York City – the other is Sunnyside Gardens Park in Queens – as well as one of only three in the state; only people residing around the park who pay an annual fee have a key, and the public is not generally allowed in – although the sidewalks of the streets around the park are a popular jogging, strolling and dog-walking route.
Description: “Located in one of Gramercy Park’s most distinctive prewar cooperatives, 1 Lexington Avenue, this expansive 5 bedroom, 3.5 bathroom duplex home has been beautifully renovated and combined. The well-proportioned and elegant layout wraps two corners with rooms that flow seamlessly into one another. A gracious entry gallery with a handsome staircase leads to the public rooms of the apartment.
