Gramercy Park

Cute and Cozy Village Charm
Gramercy Park is named after the private, fenced-in park that you can access only if you have one of the 383 exclusive keys. If you live in one of the surrounding apartments or townhouses, you're one of the few who get to stroll through this beautiful ornamental garden. The rest of the neighborhood is equally cozy, quiet, and safe. Gramercy Park is a good distance away from the
crowded tourists of Midtown, so it isn't as busy and non-stop as some other areas. However, you will find lots of charming cafes, delicious dining, and fun bars on quaint, tree-lined streets. If you do want to venture out, you will have plenty of public transportation options.

Renters love Gramercy Park due to its lush greenery, laidback vibe, and comfy village charm. Its historic walkups and doorman buildings are a favorite along with the stylish hotels. Gramercy Park has a mix of performance venues like Irving Plaza and the Jazz Standard for live music, and landmarks like the National Art Club and The Players private club.

Gramercy Park — 8.2/10 Rating (based on 51 neighborhood reviews)
See first thing I wrote. Kips bay/murray hill has a great bar and restaurant scene, very young. You don't really go out Friday/Saturday night here, not enough dancing type bars, but it's awesome for just about every other occasion. Central location for everywhere that you would go in any situation though.

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!!

I love Gramercy - close to great restaurants and bars, plus streets have a nice, neighborhood feel. Good parks nearby, and easy to run out to the Hudson along the trails. Close the L, but is closed on the weekends lately which has been awful.

Tons of bars and restaurants, which is important for my social life on weekends, especially with the late hours we work during the week. My biggest complaint about the neighborhood is that it is very dirty.

Good neighborhood for living: Trader Joe's, Fairway, movie theater all within walking distance. Also close to NYU Langone hospital which is good for two reasons: can get to the hospital quickly if you're sick and it's right by the E line shuttle that NYU runs. Get to class in about 15 minutes without having to pay anything more.

PRO:
Safe area (next door to the Police Academy)
Pretty quiet neighborhood (3rd ave is not too noisy)
Close to actual Gramercy Park
1mi from campus
Many restaurants/bars close by, but not noisy on a Fri/Sat night

CONS
No do-it-yourself laundry nearby (wash and fold options close)
No actual access to Gramercy Park
Closest "large" grocery stores at Union Square (Trader Joes, Whole Foods)-not a problem per se, but expect them to be very crowded most of the time

I love that our little pocket of a neighborhood is convenient to Union Square, M101, 102, 103 & 15 bus lines and both the 6 and the NR subway lines. We have everything we need within walking distance and are surrounded by restaurants and bars without being in the center of the commotion. Just north of Gramercy, just below Murray Hill. (we are NOT Murray Hill ;) Our streets are safe and quite.

East village is great because it is close to school with a great restaurant and bar scene. The only down side is that there are a few hospitals in the area, which means that there are a few more homeless people around than some other areas, especially during the summer, since they are often picked up and then discharged. It doesn't feel unsafe because of the homeless people, but it isn't the most pleasant part of the neighborhood.

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.

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.

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.
