Neighborhood Description

Tudor City, a small enclave located on Midtown Manhattan's far east side, contains everything one needs for a great New York experience without stepping beyond the confines of a few blocks.

Known for its large rooftop sign overlooking Forty-Second Street, it’s situated between Fortieth and Forty-Third Streets to the north and south, and First and Second Avenues to the east and west.

Despite its name, Tudor City is actually one large apartment complex that over five thousand New Yorkers call home. A little trivia: it’s also the first residential skyscraper complex in the world.

The area now known as Tudor City was once called “Goat Hill,” and, later, “Prospect Hill.” It once consisted of slums and tenements bordered by slaughterhouses and a power plant. The area was notorious for its high rate of violent crime and waterfront thieves, including the infamous Rag Gang. But in the 1920’s, real estate developer Fred F. French envisioned Tudor City as an urban, middle class utopia, named after England’s Tudor Dynasty. And today, visitors and residents of Tudor City would likely agree that French achieved his vision.

Tudor City is distinguished by its neo-gothic architecture, gardens, and amenities. At present, the population is ~2,000, the majority of which are United Nations workers and young professionals. The vibe is not only that of an apartment complex—it’s that of a community. Within the "city" buildings, residents can find a gourmet deli, hair salon, dry cleaner, grocery store, and restaurants. The area is very close to the United Nations and provides views of that building as well as of the Chrysler and Empire State buildings. For those interested in utilizing green space, there are two parks located within the complex. Though the community is contained, residents of Tudor City are far from isolated. The neighborhood is within walking distance of Grand Central, as well as all the bars, shops, and restaurants of Midtown East and Murray Hill

Tudor City has become iconic in popular culture, particularly in film and television. The Godfather II, The Peacemaker, the Spider-Man trilogy, Taxi-Driver, and Scarface are among the films that have featured it as a location, and the building is also recognizable in the opening credits of the 1980’s hit television series, The Jeffersons.

The 4/5/6 train, 7 train, or S Shuttle at Grand Central Terminal are the closest subway lines serving Tudor City. Additionally, the M42 bus runs across Forty-Second Street, while the M15 runs down Second Avenue.
