Welcome to Gramercy

A quiet residential haven, explore Gramercy real estate!

Located east of the Flatiron District, Gramercy gets its name from the resident-only park that the neighborhood encircles. It is considered a well-to-do and quiet neighborhood despite the bustle of New York City that surrounds it. With their own private park, who wouldn’t enjoy living in this neighborhood?

During the 19th century, developers wanted to create a fashionable residential area. This dream came true with the creation of Gramercy Park. The area is known for attracting the most affluent of residents, including politicians, writers, musicians, and artists.

Homes in the Gramercy real estate market are typically luxury walk-ups with a steep price of a couple of million dollars on average. Despite this, residents love the area for its privacy, which is hard to come by, especially in New York City. Gramercy homes are beautiful and luxurious and make the perfect escape from the fast-paced city.
