Gramercy Park

A Quiet Refuge from the City

The Key to the Park

ramercy Park is the elegant centerpiece to the New York neighborhood and a private enclave exclusive to local residents and Gramercy Park Hotel guests, making it a place of intrigue for all who pass by its tree-lined boundaries.

The park is the legacy of Samuel Ruggles, a visionary developer who designed the plot in the 1830s after a London square — a refuge then lacking in the relentless bustle of the city. Today, it’s surrounded by some of New York's most delightful architectural

treasures: Stanford White's The Player's Club (a club founded by the actor Edwin Booth, whose statue stands in the park), the National Arts Club (former home to Governor Samuel Tilden), the Stuyvesant Fish House where John Barrymore lived, and 36 Gramercy Park East, a neo-Gothic fantasy of terracotta where gargoyles stand guard high over the greenery.

Guests are allowed access into the tranquil park and to step into a New York City of a quieter, gentler time.

Nightlife

Sleep No More

view site

Sleep No More is set in a building with five floors of theatrical action, putatively called the McKittrick Hotel, though with many rooms and features not normally associated with hotels, including those which resemble an antiquated lunatic asylum, doctor’s offices, children’s bedrooms, a cemetery, indoor courtyards, shops, a padded cell, a ballroom, taxidermist’s menageries, and so on. The actors and their environment all adopt the dress, decor, and aesthetic style of the early 20th century, inspired by the shadowy and anxious atmosphere of film noir.

Dining

Fat Radish

view site

The Fat Radish is a simple, elegant and airy room that still retains the industrial feel of London's original Covent Garden marketplace. The cuisine does not fall into one particular category but rather returns to a way of eating before food was constantly classified. The menu is bound by one philosophy, simple, healthy, delicious dishes created with well-sourced, seasonal ingredients.
