Where Would You Live? South of Herald Square, Broadway and Fifth Avenues have emerged as the freshest district for boutique hotels, trendy dining, and cocktail culture. Madison Park is the new nexus for outdoor recreation and festivals. Park Avenue South is lined with converted warehouse lofts that have been reborn as luxury dwellings, and new condominiums built in the past decade draw record breaking prices. The square surrounding the esoteric Gramercy Park recalls the grace of a bygone century with Victorian, beaux arts, gothic revival and mid-century modern architecture.
