Total Hunt Time
About 3 to 4 hours, depending on options selected
Bounded by, Greenwich Village to the south, Chelsea to the west, Midtown South to the north and Lexington Avenue to the east, the Flatiron District/Gramercy Park is a fascinating, rapidly developing residential area with a rich and varied history. Previously known as the “Photo District” for the large number of photographers’ studios, and the “Toy District”, for the toy manufacturers located in the nearby Toy Center buildings, this area is at the heart of traditional Manhattan. It boasts the eponymous Flatiron Building — one of the oldest of the original New York skyscrapers; Madison Square Park — the “birthplace of baseball” where Alexander Cartwright formed the first baseball club, the New York Knickerbockers, here in 1845; and Gramercy Park — offering views of some of the most prestigious residences in pre-Civil War New York. During your treasure hunt in the Flatiron District/Gramercy Park, expect to see a little-seen Holocaust memorial; the birthplace of one of greatest presidents; the home of a famous American writer, and much more!
