Manhattan cannot be experienced by tour bus: you miss the sights, the delicious and repulsive smells, the familiar and bizarre sounds...nor can interact with what makes the city so great: its people and energy. Wear your sneakers, pack a light bag, and find a walking tour that interests you. If you don't want to join a group, we have several tours that you can print out to read as you go, and a new service that offers a cell phone guide of downtown.
Gramercy is a small residential neighborhood filled with young families with children, dogs, or children and dogs, centered on Gramercy Park, a locked space between 20th and 21st Streets, Park Avenue South, and Third Avenue. The gated park is for the residents of the square, including the National Arts Club and the Gramercy Hotel. The lovely little street that abuts the park from the south, Irving Place, is the areas own Restaurant Row.
