Renovations Currently Taking Place

Very nice location, building needs renovations but they are actually doing them as we speak. They just started a project to re-do the hallways and lights and stuff like that which will look nice. Recently added wifi to the gym which is also a plus. Elevators can be slow.

Good value but bad location

I loved the doormen (and all of the staff) and the fact that there was a gym and rooftop, but the location is terrible - right across from public housing and far from the subway. Management company isn't quick to respond to complaints. Gym always broken.

Good enough

Parc East is convenient and spacious, but feels like a dorm. The rooms are huge, even with a flex, and the kitchen has nice new appliances. Doormen are good about getting to know tenants and packages, not that cautious about visitors/security though.

Great for young professionals

Parc East is a great apartment building for young professionals. It is located (fairly) close to the 28thst 6 train, has a gym, great management, and is pet-friendly. Our apartment is very spacious, and has tons of sunlight. Units vary in size.

Gramercy Park Reviews

52 reviews
Fairway and Trader Joes are very close by. Bit of a walk to the 6 train. Use free NYU shuttle from Gramercy Green to commute to school. Duane Reade opposite the building. Great for Indian students as it very close to all the Indian restaurants and grocery stores around 28th and Lexington.
Gramercy gives you immediate, walking proximity to the fun neighborhoods (e.g., East Village, Flatiron, Murray Hill), without having to live in them. Residents tend to be young couples and young families.
Gramercy is a gorgeous historic neighborhood, and the building is a 5 min walk from the famed Gramercy Park and 10 min walk to Madison Square Park (great for dogs). The area is quiet, but the best restaurants and nightlife are only a short walk away (10 min south to the East Village or 10 min west to Chelsea).
Pros - Fairway at 30th/2nd ave, which is wonderful. Route E shuttle goes to 30th/1st ave, so it's easy to get to and from campus on weekdays. Very quiet area, but with lots of restaurants and a fair amount of nightlife. So close to Penn Station, which makes it easy to get to the airport and to leave the city.

Cons - It can feel far from the heart of campus, and I'm constantly taking cabs and public transit back and forth; combined with high rent, this can get expensive.
This is a very fun area with a lot of places to go. There are tons of bars, restaurants, shops, nail salons, and it is easy to get around.
Great food, bars, and people and very close to multiple modes of transport to easily get anywhere in the city. There are several bus stops right at your doorstep and a ferry about a two minute walk over on the Ave C side. Easy access to East River Walk for other activities and sports as well. Very easy to get to major hub at Union Square by foot or transport.
Stuytown is its own neighborhood on the map, so your immediate surroundings seem like an oasis in the city. It's also super safe with 24/7 security. Beyond that, it's close to Alphabet City and the East Village, which are my personal favorite places to go out. Union Square is really close for shopping as well. I'm very happy with it and would probably live in this neighborhood even if I wasn't in Stuytown. There is also a FREE NYU SHUTTLE that takes you to/from campus every day. Can't beat that!!
Technically in Gramercy, the apartment falls more in line with Murray Hill. Plenty of restaurants/bars within walking distance with a great social scene. The East River is 2 blocks away for great running/exercising areas. Most subways and buses stop at 23rd St. so it's great for transportation. Highly recommended area.
