Gramercy Park is the name of both a small, fenced-in private park and the surrounding neighborhood that is referred to also as Gramercy. Its boundaries include 14th Street, First Avenue, 23rd Street and Park Avenue South, with two-acre Gramercy Park sandwiched between 20th and 21st Streets and Gramercy Park West and East. Stuyvesant Square goes from 15th to 17th Streets and Rutherford to Nathan D. Perlman Place. Gramercy Park is a calm residential area defined by diverse architecture. Zoning laws limit buildings to around 20 stories, preserving the three to four-story buildings that line Gramercy’s quiet, safe sidewalks.
