My experience from living this past year at my school’s dorms in Gramercy was very positive.
A walking distance from the east village and Chelsea, living in Gramercy feels like a nice and quiet place that is also close to all the hip and growing areas in the city. The Gramercy Park is one of the most beautiful getaways in the city, but only residents of this area are allowed to get in with a unique key. You’ll have to walk to the East Village for the cool bars, although there some moderate bars around Gramercy. Overall I believe that this area fits most for students or families.

I lived in Stuyvesant Town and later in Peter Cooper Village and both are fantastic. I loved the area and both provide easy access to express buses uptown and cross town, L at 14th street, and 4,5,6 trains. PCV and Stuyuvesant Town are possibly the best value apartments in the whole city. The grounds around PCV and Stuy Town are wonderful and super dog and family friendly. It's amazing to be able to live in such a quiet, calm area tucked into such a chaotic city.
This beautiful neighborhood is very safe and has plenty of shopping, restaurants, and nightlife. The architecture of the buildings surrounding the exclusive Gramercy Park is very classic and picturesque.
