The Gramercy Park Hotel is one of the truly legendary and historic hotels in New York City, designed by Robert T. Lyons and built by the famous developer brothers Bing and Bing, the Gramercy Park Hotel in Manhattan opened its doors in 1925. It was built on the site of flamboyant architect Stanford White‘s home where previously the townhouse that Edith Wharton was born in had stood. The Gramercy Park Hotel in Manhattan has hosted generations of the sort of visitors who make downtown New York “downtown”.
The Gramercy Park historic Hotel in New York City was the headquarters for high bohemia, where artists, adventurers and bonvivants rubbed elbows. Humphrey Bogart was married here. Humorist S.J. Perelman lived here because it reminded him of his native London while being convenient to Third Avenue’s great delis. Legendary Yankee Babe Ruth liked to drink at its famous bar, which has retained its bohemian charm over the years, serving as a watering hole to generations of artists, writers and musicians.
