Listen: Here's Why You're Not Allowed Inside Gramercy Park, Manhattan's Only Private Park

In this recent This is New York podcast from our friends at DNAinfo, listen to the ‘Mayor’ of Manhattan’s private Gramercy Park, Arlene Harrison, explain why us plebeians are not allowed inside.

Gramercy Park, that secluded, beautiful and extremely exclusive greenspace, is one of just two private parks in New York City.[…]Each lot surrounding the park has to pay annual maintenance fees for the space — in 2014 it was $7,500. The annual fee gets each lot two keys and residents of those buildings can choose to buy an additional key of their own for $350 more.

Check out the accompanying story for more.
