Extending from 24th Street south to Union Square and from Fifth to First avenues, Gramercy Park, as the city's oldest residential neighborhood, it has been home to some of the world's most influential people: Edith Wharton, Theodore Roosevelt and Eugene O'Neill. Considered the most well-preserved historic downtown district, it features the last private park in New York City -- Gramercy Park. The neighborhood is a rich urban mixture of townhouses, apartments and commercial buildings that live happily alongside the very famous garden. Now a popular place for young professionals, designers and artists, it offers 19th Century townhouses, luxury high-rise living and renovated warehouse loft apartments.
