In 1966, the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission designated the relatively small Gramercy Park Historic District, consisting of Gramercy Park itself, the Calvary Church complex on Park Avenue, and 71 buildings on the east, west, and south sides of the park and along several streets to the south; in 1988, the district was expanded with the addition of 36 Gramercy Park East. These buildings are only a portion of what gives the Gramercy Park community its character - there are many other buildings in the neighborhood of great architectural and historical interest.

Therefore, Gramercy Neighborhood Associates, Inc., has proposed a significant expansion of the district boundaries, the designation of a 17th Street/Irving Place Historic District, and the designation of a series of individual buildings and of one building interior in the neighborhood (parts of Washington Irving High School).
