About the Neighborhood

First popularized by the J.P. Morgans and Eleanor Roosevelts of the world, this midtown-adjacent area remains a favorite today thanks to its tree-lined townhouse streets and East River views – and an exceptional convenience to its location steps from Grand Central Station, midtown office buildings, and all things Gramercy, too. Lexington Avenue has always been fragrant with spices from a strip of excellent curry shops, while some new coolness comes courtesy of Dover Street Market, an outpost of the super-conceptual London shop.
