Gramercy is one of Manhattan’s most charming neighborhoods, offering a quiet respite from the more typically loud and trendy downtown areas. Teeming with great restaurants, museums, and parks, this part of Manhattan is an instant draw for those seeking culture and prestige. While the neighborhood’s most famous feature, Gramercy Park, is private, Gramercy still has an air of accessibility, with architecture that harkens back to “Old New York.” Running from 16th to 23rd Streets and from 3rd Avenue to Park Avenue South, this culture-rich area is just a short walk from StuyTown Apartments.
StuyTown offers some of the best spaces and value, all in the heart of Manhattan. StuyTown has one, two, three, and five bedroom apartments located near all the best neighborhoods, including Gramercy Park.

The Gramercy Park area is generally known as a quiet place to live with its own private security team and lots of nature for the concrete jungle known as New York City. The area boasts over 3,000 trees and is still just minutes on the train from Union Square, Times Square, and even Columbus Circle.
Gramercy Park has some of the best shops and restaurants in the city such as Gramercy Tavern, Maialino in the Gramercy Park Hotel, Pure Food and Wine, and Friend of a Farmer, to name a few. There are many great neighborhood bars such as Pete’s Tavern, Bull’s Head Tavern, and Taproom No. 307. Right across the street from Madison Square Park is the aptly named Eleven Madison Park, a consensus pick for one of the 10 best restaurants in the world. Located in the Art Deco Metropolitan Life North Building, this high-end eatery was named the #3 restaurant in the entire world by the S. Pellegrino 50 Best Restaurants list. Originally opened by Shake Shack owner Danny Meyer, Eleven Madison Park is a destination for diners the world over. Other local standouts include Cosme, opened by Mexican chef Enrique Olvera, owner of Pujol in Mexico City, another regular on the “World’s Best” list. For those with an adventurous streak, check out Yakiniku Futago, a Korean-Japanese barbecue spot famous for its imported Wagyu beef and other Asian delicacies. Beware though, you may have to cook the food yourself in a seasoned hot pot.
After a long day of exploring, stop at one of the neighborhood’s high-end watering holes for a drink. In addition to the spots names above, Raines Law Room may not sound like a bar but it is a splendidly decorated space with classic cocktails (Manhattan, Negroni) and some of the modern variety (try the 10 Gallon Hat, a mix of mescal, ancho chile, lime, and pineapple). You will not be disappointed. Another popular spot resides inside the NoMad Hotel: The NoMad Bar. Owned by the same team as Eleven Madison Park, this spot serves not only outstanding cocktails but offers less expensive versions of the food that has made Eleven Madison Park so famous.
