Gramercy Park is a rewarding lifestyle. We have
been here since its opening and have not regretted the
decision to move here for one moment.
There are many advantages to living here, peace of mind
is foremost. Our security measures allow residents
the opportunity to enjoy daily activities and the
ability to go to bed at night without fear. Our
doors are locked 24 hours a day and we park in a secure
underground garage with an additional secure entrance to
Another distinct advantage of living at Gramercy is
sociability. Residents never have to be alone.
There's always someone exercising in the exercise room,
walking the halls, assembling puzzles or gathering near
the fireplace to visit. On the other hand, we have
all the privacy we want by just going to our home and closing the door.
We have many special events, including weekly coffee, as
well as, holiday parties, bingo and cards to name just a
few. Our outdoor patio offers a place to grill or
just relax and watch the ducks and other wildlife that
frequent our pond. The area surrounding the pond
is ever changing from lush green in summer to beautiful
fall colors, and the lacy covered beauty of the new
fallen snow in winter.
We do not have to live by the rules of a landlord as we
are self-governing. We elect a board of governors
who look out for our best interests and members of our
community volunteer to serve on committees that ensure
the board is well informed of all our needs.
Gramercy Park Duluth is a great place to live. It
is a myriad of smiling faces and cheery greetings.
We have not missed our home for one minute since moving
here. We are located close to all the amenities
offered by the malls, shopping center and restaurants
literally just outside our door. Yet we have
seclusion from all of the hubbub of the surrounding
activities by our unique setting.
Life is a series of decisions. We felt the
decision to select Gramercy Park Duluth as our home has
been the best decision for us to enjoy a carefree life
among friends. It truly is "Our Home!"

For 8 1/2
years now I have been able to continue two hobbies here
that I have pursued for over 40 years - cutting and
polishing agates/stones and family history research,
which give me much joy. From the first time
Marge & I involved ourselves in the Comittee work of the
Co-operative, which helped us become rapidly acquainted
with many other residents of the building and to learn
how our Co-op works. We are very happy her at
Gramercy Park Co-op and plan to live here as long
as we can.
has been so much fun - we have made many close friends.
For me three big features of living here have been
having our own private laundry, having an outdoor
balcony and having a parking space in the heated garage.
I enjoy the opportunity to make a contribution to the
Co-op and am proud of the more than 4 years I have
served on the Board of Directors.
I am very
happy living at Gramercy Park and am happy that I don't
have a house and yard to care for! We moved here
before our bodies said
"No More!". I especially appreciate the
cooperative concept of living. We, the residents, own
the building and land - not some absentee landlord.
When maintenance is necessary or fees need to be raised,
our own board of directors, (our own residents), make
the decision. So many of our residents say, "It's
he best deal in town".
I really like
living at Gramercy Park for many reasons: We have
an attractive place to live, a nice convenient home
and an indoor heated garage!! We can enjoy social
activities and occasional entertainment without having
to leave the building - especially during bad weather.
Its also fun to sit on our deck and watch the wildlife
around and in the pond. It's a good place to
I have been a
resident of Gramercy for almost 2 years and "It couldn't
be better". Coming from a large home, I found my
home to be more than adequate. I so
appreciate the total floor plan with its large rooms,
laundry and useful balcony. The Gramercy community
is great and the maintenance and administration is
exceptional. I would be amiss not to mention the
heated underground garage which is a luxury beyond
I like that
the Gramercy Room is available to all members, the
housekeeping committee does a great job! The decorating
committee keeps our Community cheerful! Also, when
you enter our community we always have music on and the
fireplace going in the winter, very warm and cozy...
We would like
to begin by saying we love it here at Gramercy Park
Duluth. It was ready for occupancy in early 2000
and we were among the very first to sign up during the
This home is one of many for us over the years and we
enjoyed all of them in their time, but at present we
cannot think of a place we would rather live than where
we are now. It is as convenient as can be to the
Miller Hill Mall and other businesses, but we still have
a certain amount of seclusion and frequently see deer,
ducks in our pond, an occasional bear and other wildlife
on our property.
Gramercy Park Duluth has so many amenities - something
for everyone, from a workshop and carwash in the lower
level with heated garage for all members, library, craft
room, to an exercise room and much more. However,
one of the greatest advantages in living here is the
people. There is a wide choice of activities.
Being a co-op, the members actually 'run' the property,
with a wonderful administrator and a management company
for handling certain details. We hope our health
allows us to live here for many more years.

In April of
2000 my husband and I moved to Gramercy Park. We
wanted a life style change. We found everything we
were looking for a Gramercy. It is a friendly
community, there are activities in the building,
wonderful areas for walking and worry-free living.
This summer I lost my husband, and I really found out
what it meant to be here. Being in a community
like this you have so much support when you need it.
People are wonderful. We have great security, so I
don't worry about being alone.
My husband and
I moved to Gramercy when it opened. It was perfect
for us, we spend 5 months a winter in Arizona and we
could just lock the door and leave. Now that I've
lost my husband, I realize what a close knit family I
have here at Gramercy.

Goodies... Convenient for services, close to grocery
stores, clothing, clinic, car services... all within 5
minutes away. Gramercy is a community itself... we
have special events and things we do. Gramercy is
safe. And no snow shoveling or lawn mowing... the
chores that you used to do... its great!
To begin with
my husband and I enjoy our home and the wildlife we
often see just beyond our balcony. Then there is
the atmosphere of "family" here, which we appreciate.
From the first
day we moved to Gramercy we were treated, what we felt,
like we had lived here all our lives. We were shown all
of the building and introduced to everybody we ran into
that day and for many days after. We have
found out there are many jobs/functions that we can take
part in (if we desire to) that can fill in any spare
time (to keep busy). The use of Channel 14 is used a lot
ot keep us informed of any Gramercy news. The
security gives us a big feeling of safety (Fire, snow
removal, locked doors). And the property is clean
and well maintained. The residents run the community and
have a right to vote to help make decisions. Many
thoughtful people are ready to help you in an emergency

Norman and I
moved into Gramercy in March 2000, We were the 7th to
move in and have never regretted it; we have met many
wonderful people that we would not have know if we
didn't move here. As a share owner in the Co-op,
your unit can be decorated as you desire it to be, it is
your home. When we moved in we didn't like all the
white walls so when our children asked what we would
like for Mothers or Fathers day, we said we would like
our walls painted and a wall paper border so that's what
they did. If an appliance breaks down you don't
have to worry, our Maintenance man takes care of it,
also no mowing and shoveling. We also could pick
out the color of carpeting and vinyl's. One
question many people have asked is, don't you always
have people bothering you? Our response is if you
want company there is plenty of it around, if you don't
you are left alone. We have different card games
couple of nights a week, Bingo once a month, many
different Dinner Parties with entertainment to follow,
Craft room, Exercise Room, Library, Puzzle area (which
has a big following), two guest rooms you can rent for
$45 a night, indoor parking, carwash and air for tires,
many more plus's. Come and join us for fun in

Marcy & Richard McPheeters
here for 5-years and have never regretted the move from
our home and big yard. We found so many caring and
genuine people here who are willing to join in our
festivities and willing to help make the various
activities fun and a success. It is truly a
friendly place to live.

I moved to
Gramercy of Duluth in February of this year and I
immediately felt right at home. Everyone was so
friendly, cheerful and welcoming. The positive
energy is everywhere. And there is always
something going on, like socials and of course, Bingo,
which I love (especially when I win!) here is
always a friend of two nearby to chat with. My
home is lovely, spacious and bright and I appreciate the
fitness room with the new machines just down the hall.
I am so grateful to living in this dynamic, energetic
