Quite possibly the most gorgeous square in New York, Gramercy Park has a mysterious air of exclusivity. The square was built in the 1830s as a residence for the very rich, and in the center, they built what is New York's only private park. Residents in the surrounding buildings have keys to the lovely oasis, and it is only open to the public a few days a year, on special occasions. Guests at the Gramercy Park Hotel
also get a key, so they may enjoy a stroll during their stay. The homes at Gramercy were built by some of New York's leading architects, so the area is definitely worth a trip, even if you find yourself locked out of this Garden of Eden.
