As a frequent visitor to the gardens, it remains one of the best-kept secrets in town. With the neighbourhood shops across the road, and the serenity of the parks, you could be in any small town in the country. Therein lies its charm. Mostly used as a lunch stop for nearby office workers, both parks are quiet and uncluttered after lunch hour. And there’s no through traffic - a big bonus. High recommendation.

We visited recently this "green oasis" in Midtown Manhattan! Green plants and shrubs everywhere with benches for reading or just relaxing. This area is nestled in a residential setting with the river on one side and 42nd St. on the other. It is generally a quiet residential area with a good mix of families with children and elderly with scattered singles. Truly a gem of a neighborhood. Worth a walking visit!

I spent a restful half hour at the Tudor City Greens during my walk past the UN last week. It's great fun climbing the stairs and looking out to the east, and then walking through the two beautiful Greens. Private to the occupants of Tudor City, but very often open to the public.

Last week the flowers were in full bloom, and there were many birds flitting about and singing. An absolute joyous interlude before moving on home.

Sometimes in midtown Manhattan you just need to find a quiet place to relax and regroup. The Tudor City Greens provide just such an oasis. Located between 41st and 43rd Streets between 1st and 2nd Avenues this quiet green area with plenty of benches is easy to miss. I like walking east on 43rd street from 2nd Avenue, looking at the majestic UN building framed by the English Cottage Style architecture of the Tudor City complex, and turning right on Tudor City Place to enter the greens. You can also walk east on 42nd Street and take the steps up just past the Ford Foundation building. However you reach it you will enjoy having discovered this little bit of quiet in midtown.
