18 Gramercy Park South - MWC Marketing + Public Relations
I do not understand
how anyone can live
without one small place
of enchantment to turn to.
MARJORIE KINNAN RAWLINGS
There is a place of verdant serenity…
A place that delights in the changing seasons.
A place to breathe in the scent of a rosebud
in the morning air. Or to watch a tree’s shadow
grow at sunset.
A place that encourages the contemplation
of great thoughts, or a bird’s song.
A place to quietly observe the passage of time.
A graceful sanctuary…
A place that serves as a shelter from the turbulence
of everyday life.
A place where noise and distractions are not admitted.
A place to collect oneself, and become centered.
Where a sense of balance and composure is regained.
A domain infused with history and culture…
Within its boundaries artists create.
Industrialists build empires.
And beguiled parents watch as their children
discover the world.
That resides within a dynamic metropolis…
That place is Gramercy Park.
In each great city of the world, the most privileged
residents claim an area of refuge. A private quarter
where the urban bustle does not intrude. In London’s
Berkeley Square or the Place Vendôme in Paris,
the urban elite reserves to itself a cloistered realm
of domestic tranquility.
A place of light and air.
A place of architectural distinction.
A place where genteel living is its own reward.
Now an opportunity arrives to achieve that style of life.
The opportunity is
18 Gramercy Park South.
For a property of this significance to
become available in so exclusive
a neighborhood, within a world capital city,
is a rare event indeed.
Overlooking the square inspired by the
private parks of Regency-era London,
18 Gramercy Park South occupies four of
the original 66 building lots laid out by
developer Samuel Ruggles in 1831. The
17-story Georgian structure is situated on
the corner of Irving Place, which allows for
its attractive fenestration and high window
to floor area ratio. Constructed in 1927,
the building soars above its low-rise
neighbors. But for the second floor and
penthouse, each floor conforms to
a similar configuration. Further
distinguishing this prized property are four
terraces on the penthouse level and the
chamfered facade of the building, yielding
The historic district of Gramercy Park is
one of New York City’s most sought-after
neighborhoods. It is immediately accessible
to Midtown Manhattan, Greenwich Village
and the chic shopping districts of Chelsea
and Soho, yet it remains a secluded oasis
characterized by traditional brownstone
and brick residential buildings.
Residents of this “keyholder” property are
among the exclusive few with access to the
interior gardens of the only remaining
private park in New York City.
