How to See Inside Gramercy Park Without a Key

As you probably know, Gramercy Park is the only private park in the City. The only people allowed inside are key-holders, and to get a key you have to live on one of the streets surrounding the park. Chances are you are not a millionaire, so how can you peek inside?

You could jump the fence... but there is a better way. Shawn Christopher, a software engineer from Pennsylvania, recently booked an Airbnb rental on the park's edge, giving him one of the 383 keys to the park for the duration of his stay. Compared to the average price of a home along the park, the Airbnb route is a bargain deal. But, if you don't want to spend the cash on a one-night rental, you are lucky because Shawn created three 360-degree photo sphere panoramas that puts you right in middle of the private park.
