The summer is rapidly approaching, and with it is coming a huge new exciting change. Moving in with my boyfriend! One of the things we agreed on 100% was location. The Gramercy Park area has always been one of my favorite neighborhoods in Manhattan. It’s small enough to feel like an actual home, but close enough to the most exciting parts of the city that you don’t feel out of touch.
Though just getting into the beginning of our search, I almost dropped on the ground when I received a text from him; “the apartment has a key”. One of the oldest remaining private parks in New York State, Gramercy Park only has less than 400 keys circulating. Most of the buildings surrounding the park have keys as well as the Gramercy Park Hotel which has several for guests. You have to pay a decent chunk of change annually to have access. But the money is very well-spent [as you can see from these gorgeous photos].
A beautiful sunny warm day was the perfect backdrop for some photography [I know, MORE flowers]. From the ornate buildings to the gorgeous landscaping, I could have spent all day here. P.S. I see you Chrysler Building!
