A city escape in Gramercy Park

Visitors flock to Manhattan for the endless dining options, incredible museums and famous landmarks, and Gramercy Park is the perfect hub for enjoying some of the best that this New York City borough has to offer. The neighborhood is residential, so things are a little quieter here, but the hubbub and big attractions of Midtown and the Financial District are just a quick subway ride away. After selecting your ideal Gramercy Park vacation rental, it's off for sidewalk shopping in nearby neighborhoods like Chinatown and Little Italy, and boat rides along the East River to snap skyline photos of Manhattan.

Things to do

Seeking city views near Gramercy Park

The Empire State Building, one of Manhattan's top attractions, is in walking distance from Gramercy Park, so paying a visit to the Art Deco skyscraper is a must. You can admire the 102-story structure from the streets below, but why not head up to the observation decks to check out the city views? The Main Deck on the 86th floor is an open-air space with binoculars to help you pinpoint sights below, such as the Hudson River and Brooklyn Bridge. To access city vistas on the Top Deck, you'll ride a manually-operated elevator.

Activities

Hitting the streets around Gramercy Park

Right next to Gramercy Park, Union Square is the place to go for sightseeing, in a lively district where coffee shops and eateries surround a large, central green space. Head straight for Union Square Park to check out the statues honoring George Washington, Abraham Lincoln and Mahatma Gandhi, and grab a bagel and schmear on the way to enjoy a breakfast picnic on the shady benches or open lawns. The park has a subway station, but stick around long enough to stroll the sidewalks and let the kids play on the accessible playground.

Weather

Fall colors in Gramercy Park

Fall paints New York City in gorgeous shades of yellow, orange and red, as trees in the parks and squares change their leaves with the cooling temperatures. Some afternoons early in the season may still be warm enough to leave the sweater at home, but when the highs cool off into the 60s, you'll be tempted to spend all day outside, strolling around the surrounding neighborhoods with a coffee in hand. If you visit later in fall, as the busy holiday season approaches, be sure to book your Gramercy Park vacation rental early to ensure your ideal dates are available.

Natural features

Off to the river from Gramercy Park

Since Gramercy Park is just a couple of blocks from the East River that flows between Manhattan and Brooklyn, it's easy to find ways to rediscover nature in the midst of the big city. There are a few urban green spaces close to your Gramercy Park vacation rental, but the 57-acre East River Park isn't far from here, and offers bike and walking paths along the waterfront. If you want to get out on the river, try the East River Ferry, which takes off about a mile from Gramercy Park and offers incredible views of the skyline and riverside parks.
