Gramercy Park (sometimes misspelled as Grammercy) is a small, fenced-in private park in the Gramercy neighborhood of Manhattan, New York City, New York State. The park is one of only two remaining private parks in New York City with almost no access to the public.
Gramercy Park is held in common as one of the City's two privately owned parks (Sunnyside Gardens is the other) by the owners of the surrounding structures, as it has remained since December 31, 1831. Nearby residents may buy visiting privileges. In addition, members of the Players Club and the National Arts Club as well as guests of the Gramercy Park Hotel have key access.
The park at one time opened to the public on Gramercy Day (which changed yearly, but was often the first Saturday in May). In 2007, the Gramercy Park Block Association announced that it would no longer open the park on that day, though caroling in the park on Christmas Eve is expected to continue.
