Carl Schurz Park

In the early 1970's, a small group of neighbors banded together to help upgrade Carl Schurz Park, giving particular emphasis to its playground, which serves the needs of neighborhood children. Today, this lovely park hosts what many consider to be the finest outdoor professional art show in the Metropolitan area. They also sponsor playground parties for children, outdoor summer concerts, astronomy sessions and much more. As family-friendly as they come, this will become a regular "go-to" for you and your family, all in the comfort of your Gracie Point community.

Gracie Mansion

Built in 1799 by a prominent merchant named Archibald Gracie, it is designated as the official residence of the mayor of the City of New York since 1942. In 2002, Mayor Michael Bloomberg transformed Gracie Mansion into the "People's House," providing increased accessibility to the public, providing regular tours.

Museum Mile

A section of Fifth Avenue in Manhattan, running from 82nd to 104th streets on the Upper East Side, the "mile" contains one of the densest population of museums in the world. There are eleven museums in all, covering a span that is actually two blocks longer than one mile. Each year in June is the annual Museum Mile Festival to promote the museums and increase visitation.
