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.

I wanted to see these buildings to find out if they really did have a tudor style architecture and they do! Plenty of red brick,window panes and decorative parts at the top of the buildings.

On a recent visit to NYC we went for a wander around 1st and 2nd avenue near to the UN building. We stumbled across Tudor City and found it to be a beautiful little place with real character and some nice eating places and great photo opportunities. Well worth a look and remember your camera.

Before my first trip in NYC Tudor city means very mystic New York neighborhood. It was dream like to see Tudor in real life. I wondered around the block and parks behind the buildings and imagined what it would be live in here. Location is so great : same time quite peaceful but still just few blocks from central station.

My friend lives here and this is my home-away-from-home in NYC. I love how tranquil it is with great views of the East River and easy access to the East River Ferry and Grand Central. Here, you are in the middle of NYC without all the noise and congestion.
