What to Know Before Moving to Tudor City

Considered the quietest enclave in Manhattan, Tudor City offers a pleasant escape from the hustle and bustle of New York City while still being nestled in the middle of the excitement.

Historical Tidbits

Originally designed to draw in those in search of the Tudor-style homes that were popular during the 1800s, Tudor City was a planned middle-class residential district based on a mixture of 16th-century Elizabethan and Tudor styles. During the 20th century, residents were attracted to the comfort of suburban living that this style exemplified but enjoyed the development’s urban twist. As a result, Tudor City became the home of the first residential skyscraper in the world. Developers broke ground on the project in 1926, and Tudor City was placed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places sixty years later in 1986.

Neighborhood Attractions And Amenities

Yes, Tudor City is a small community. Yet it’s nestled in one of the most popular boroughs in New York City. If you’re an architectural buff, you’ll love exploring the ornamentation and finery of buildings such as Prospect Tower, Tudor Tower, Windsor Tower, and No. 2 Tudor City Place. Along with the outstanding structural design, the neighborhood is home to Tudor City Greens Park, comprising two highly manicured public parks that are focal points for the community. Just southeast, you’ll find Robert Moses Playground (a 1.3-acre park and playground), while the United Nations Plaza is to the east of the neighborhood.

Culture And People

Known for their style and class, the residents of Tudor City exude a refined quality that mirrors the exceptional architecture of the neighborhood. The planned residential community is one of the largest (and most significant) in New York City. Stately yet community-minded, there’s both a sense of history and a small-town feel that’s highly appealing. This sliver of serenity affords peace of mind and a break from the “City that Never Sleeps” vibe that permeates much of the city while providing easy access to all the cultural attractions, business opportunities, and nightlife of Eastside Manhattan and adjacent neighborhoods.

Types Of Buildings

Simply put, you won’t find residences quite like the ones in Tudor City anywhere else in NYC. Home to the first residential skyscraper on the globe, the enclave features Gothic architectural elements from the Elizabethan era and Tudor-style homes from the sixteenth century. In many cases, buildings and living spaces still house the original furnishings! Another big draw is Tudor City Greens Park, a well-landscaped public park area nestled in the northern section of the neighborhood. There is also a lack of through streets, with the majority of traffic diverted underground, which significantly reduces noise and congestion. This results in a serene atmosphere amongst the “castles in the sky.”

Altogether, this neighborhood is home to approximately 5,000 residents who live in one of the 11 co-op apartment buildings or the single all-rental Hermitage building. Most buildings were constructed between 1927 and 1930, though the Tudor Gardens at 2 Tudor City Place wasn’t completed until 1956. Many of the buildings house restaurants and shopping on the ground floors.

Walkscore Information

If you’re coming from a neighborhood or city with low walkability, and you enjoy the health benefits and convenience of a refreshing stroll, Tudor City is a fabulous pick! As with most Manhattan enclaves, the revered neighborhood offers some of the best walkability in the entire city. This allows for easy access by foot to everything the community has to offer, including being able to perform your errands with ease. Public transit is also world-class, with Grand Central Terminal just three blocks away, and you can find a number of car-sharing services (such as Zipcar, RelayRides, and Hertz On Demand) when you’d like to explore the city or need to make your way to the office.
