i love gramercy park
I've lived here 17 years and it's a very nice neighborhood, centrally located to all parts of L.A.
My 60ish husband tells me about growing up in a home on South Van Ness that his parents build after WWII and what a wonderful life it was!! He takes great pride in this neighborhood.
I have lived in this area for over 15 years. I have seen many African Americans stay in this area and make improvements to their homes, which makes it look very nice. Also, the elevation on some streets give a complete view of the downtown skyline, the Hollywood sign and snowcapped hills backdrop in the winter and spring. There are many Palm trees all over the area. Less than 8 miles from the Pacific Ocean. There is crime and poverty here too. But all in all it is area represents the city of Los Angeles well.
The borders are correct for this community, but the name is wrong. The official name of the community is, in which the city has city signs of around its bourders, is "WEST PARK TERRACE".
I wonder if the designation "Gramercy Park" really covers ALL that territory you have in your demarcation. When I was a kid I lived at 91st and Denker and was not in Gramercy Park. Gramercy Park, then, was bounded by Manchester on the north, Western Ave. on the east, Van Ness on the west, and about 92nd St. on the South. It was a small area of very nice houses, a little newer than the rest of the area. I doubt that it even went as far south as 92nd St. Maybe what you have is a census tract, but that doesn't equate to what used to be called Gramercy Park.
A most interesting project you have undertaken!
