37 GRAMERCY PARK EAST
Architect: unknown
1853-1854; altered 1968

No. 37

The east side of Gramercy Park was developed in the mid-1850s. Soon after its completion, the Anglo-Italianate rohouse erected at No. 37 became part of Sanderson's Family Hotel, which stretched along most of Gramercy Park East. By 1866, the hotel was known as gramercy Park House. An 1866 guidebook describes the extablishment, somewhat grandiosely, as Ňone of the largest hotels in the city, built of substantial brown stone, and in one of the most aristocratic localities of Gotham. In its internal arrangements it is unsurpassed and contains spacious accommodations for six to eght hundred guests. The Anglo-Italianate features evident on the first floor of this building include rusticated stonework and a pair of arched openings reconstructed when the upper floors were modernized in 1968.
