Walking the length of Tudor City Place, which is elevated above the surrounding blocks, you get a great view of the UN Building and East River on one side, and down E 42nd Street to the Chrysler Building on the other. It is a very attractive enclave, with the buildings complemented by fantastic tall trees and gardens. The real pleasure... More

Wonderful. Do not miss it if you are an architecture lover. This is a very exclusive and beautifully maintained area of East Manhattan: it's wonderful to think that this complex was originally built to provide cheaper accomodations to the growing population of Manhattan; today an apartment here would cost millions. On top of the main building you can still see... More

It's truly a magical place and until I applied for an apartment here I had never know this beautiful, tucked away little enclave existed. I'd recommend it to anyone who wants to see 'secret Manhattan.'

If you take a walk all the way to the end of 42nd street then you will run into this collection of old-style apartment buildings. It looks like a quiet and peaceful neighbourhood, although I can't speak for the quality of the interiors of the apartments. It is located conveniently close to the UN building.

I love this small enclave of buildings in a Tudoresque style running from about 40-44th street between First and Second Avenue. It is an excellent area for east siders to live with convenient bus transportation and a lot of restaurants and other services in the area. Several parks dot the area as well and a few houses of worship. It... More

This city within the city of New York is a sight to behold. Beautifully maintained, these apartment complexes date from the twenties and give one an idea of just how long N.Y.C. has been a force in the world.

No matter how many times i have visited Tudor City area, I am always amazed by the history and grandeur of what has become one of NYC's most unique neighborhoods. The current assortment of Tudor City tudor styled apartment buildings were constructed by Fred French in the 1920's demolishing some 19th Century Brownstone / Italianate Row Houses and keeping a...

Tudor City is a unique apartment "complex" that anyone can enter to enjoy the views and parks. Look to the East for a picture of the UN and look down 42nd Street, toward the West for a cool view/ photo opp of Manhattan. Twice a year the sun sets aligning with the east–west streets, one of the coolest sunsets you... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
