Gramercy - Union Square

Arts & Entertainment

Blue Smoke/Jazz Standard

116 East 27th Street
New York City, NY 10016
212.447.7733
http://www.bluesmoke.com/

Located under the best rib joints in Manhattan, they offer the same great food. What makes this place stand out is its consistent roster of top Jazz talent. Even without the 4-star food it would be one of the city's best Jazz clubs.


 

Church of the Transfiguration

1 East 29th Street
New York City, NY 10016
212.684.6770
http://www.transfigurationnyc.org

This church is notable for a couple of reasons. First, the building was erected in 1849 and features a stained glass window rescued from the rubble of the Napoleonic wars. Second, is its association with the Episcopalian Actors Guild. The Guild's past and current members include Charlton Heston, Rex Harrison, Joan Fontaine and many other huge names of stage and screen


 

Museum of Sex

233 Fifth Avenue
New York City, NY 10016
212.689.6337
http://www.museumofsex.com

This museum is actually less risqué than one might initially think. It features a largely pictorial history that illustrates the changing sexual mores in New York. From Victorian undergarments to contemporary fetish garb, desperate housewives to well, you know, professional gals, they're all here in fine video and photographic form. They also host live lectures and demonstrations (the nature of which I will leave to your imagination), and offer a very interesting gift shop.


 

National Arts Club

15 East 21st Street
New York City, NY 10010
212.477.2389
http://www.nationalartsclub.org

This beautiful brownstone overlooking Gramercy Park is dedicated to the arts. Inside there is a magnificent stained-glass Tiffany ceiling and several historic portraits. They also offer lecture series and live performances.


 

The Filmore New York at Irving Plaza

17 Irving Place
New York City, NY 10003
212.777.6800
http://www.irvingplaza.com

Operated by the same folks that run Webster Hall, Bowery and Hammerstein Ballrooms, they feature a similar collection of great rock and alt-rock performers. On any given day, you're likely to see long lines of people camped out along the wall waiting in line for tickets.


 

Theodore Roosevelt Museum

28 East 20th Street
New York City, NY 10003
212.260.1616
http://www.nps.gov/thrb

One of the most overlooked museums in the city, this is the birthplace of Theodore Roosevelt. Restored to its original 1858 grandeur, it was turned into a museum back in 1923 and contains family heirlooms, photographs, press and original documents of one of the fathers of social welfare reform.


 

Union Square Theater

100 East 17th Street
New York City, NY 10003
212.505.0700

One of the better known theater spaces in the Union Square area, they tend to feature high-profile shows.
