Gramercy Park

With Lucie Levine

[In-person tour] Gramercy Park, the city’s only private park, is home to some of Manhattan’s stateliest architecture. This tour, inspecting the environs of Irving Place and Gramercy, will focus on two landmarked historic districts in the neighborhood. Covering not only the history and architecture of 1840s – 1850s New York, this tour with historian and tour guide Lucie Levine, will also delve into the stories of the artists, writers, inventors, and politicians who called the neighborhood home.

In-person tours are limited to 25 attendees, last approximately 90 minutes to 2 hours, and are held outdoors. Walking tours bring individuals into close proximity with each other, we therefore recommend that all tour goers wear masks during the tours, regardless of vaccination status. Your tour guide and your fellow tour participants will thank you for your cooperation. Should the tours happen to venture indoors, many places require masks and/or proof of vaccination, so please be prepared to have both with you.
