Tudor City is a residential enclave rich with history that is located on the southern edge of Turtle Bay on the East Side of Manhattan in New York City. It was the first residential skyscraper complex in the world. (see, Wikipedia). Tudor City runs from 40th Street to 43rd Street between First Avenue and Second Avenue.
I recently staycationed at the Hilton Manhattan East, a hotel one block from the United Nations in one direction, and one block from Grand Central in the other direction. The hotel sits on the edge of Tudor City, though, unless you look up, Tudor City is easy to miss, except perhaps for the iconic TUDOR CITY sign (see, My Prize Weekend at the Hilton Manhattan East in NYC)
As I walked through this small square of streets and parks, I was transported to another time and place, mesmerized by the architecture, as well as the views of the United Nations and East River below, and the Chrysler building in the distance. Here are some photos I took on my walk.
Tudor City is an easy walk from Midtown Manhattan. Most of the entrances are by staircases or you can walk or drive in via East 43rd Street.
