There is one day of the year, one evening, when Manhattan’s only private park will open its gates and anyone can enter, you won’t need one of its famous, and elusive keys, you just need to turn up and enjoy the serenity of the majestic park in New York’s Gramercy district.
This year, on December 24th, Christmas Eve, the Parish of Calvary St. George will be hosting an evening of Carolling from within Gramercy Park from 6:00pm.
Did you know: Manhattan has its own private park?
Carolling in Gramercy Park has become an annual event with up to 1,000 Christmas spirited revellers making their way into the Park for an enchanting evening unlike any other in New York. As well as visitors a choir from the Parish of Calvary St. George will be on hand as well as a brass band to complete an unforgettable evening.
During the holiday period a 40-foot Norway Spruce tree will be erected and decorated by the Gramercy Park Block Association with the tree being donated by the Boag Family, who have a very long history and association with Gramercy Park.
If you are an Australian visiting New York on Christmas Eve, spending it in Gramercy Park with locals Carolling is something that you will never forget and will have stories to tell for generations.
