The Gramercy, 34 Gramercy Park East, is New York City’s oldest extant co-op and one of its most exclusive.

An 1883 masterpiece by architect George W. DaCunha, The Gramercy predates the famous Dakota Apartments by a year and is praised by the American Institute of Architects as “one of the city’s most spectacular” apartment houses. Merging elements of Queen Anne, Richardsonian Romanesque and British Arts & Crafts, The Gramercy preserves a splendid original lobby replete with stained glass, tile floors and a magnificent fireplace. Apartments are limited to three per floor, insuring privacy and quiet; many retain original details, including wainscoting, mantels and high ceilings.

Among the building’s many notable features are the park views, which involve a unique degree of intimacy: residence at The Gramercy includes a key to Gramercy Park, the only private park in Manhattan. Preserved as a tranquil formal garden, Gramercy Park is one of the most completely intact examples of an urban park of its era.

Although surrounded by the bustle of Midtown, the neighborhood is one of the most peaceful in the city. Major cultural institutions such as the National Arts Club, Sydney Mishkin Gallery at Baruch College and The Players Club are directly adjacent. Dining and nightlife options run from the opulence of the Gramercy Park Hotel to drinks at the landmarked Pete’s Tavern to the shopping, nightlife and transportation hub that is Union Square directly to the south. Steps away from New York’s most dynamic districts, Gramercy Park and The Gramercy are oases of 19th century calm.
