To the average passerby, Gramercy Park is just another patch of green space that New Yorkers have installed to convince outsiders that we don't hate nature.
We know better.
Gramercy Park is more exclusive than some of the city's trendiest clubs.
It's not as easy as strapping on a pair of heels though, entry is granted only to a select group of people who own one of the mere 400 keys to the park.
There's nothing that makes mankind, especially New Yorkers, want access to a space more than telling them it's off limits.
And once a year, the gates of Gramercy Park open to us proles for one whole hour on Christmas Eve, in the spirit of the holidays.
As reported by Curbed NY, The Gramercy Park Block Association's annual hour of caroling, hosted by the Parish of Calvary-St. George's, will begin at 6 p.m. until 7 p.m.
This will be your only chance to visit the super elite park, which is designed and landscaped to perfection (or so we hear) until next Christmas Eve, so don't miss your chance.[via Curbed NY] [Feature Image Courtesy HungryGerald.com]
