Midtown Manhattan, NYC’s thriving commercial district, is filled to the brim with skyscrapers, headquarters for global institutions, hotels and more. The eastern section of Midtown (east of 5th Ave), known as Midtown East, borders Bryant Park and the main branch of the NYC Public Library. Notable buildings in the neighborhood are the United Nations Headquarters, the art deco Chrysler Building, and the famous Rockefeller Center.
Also notable are the distinguished sub-neighborhoods of Sutton Place, Turtle Bay, and Tudor City. Sutton Place is a small, affluent enclave in the upper 50’s at the East River noted for it’s stunning architecture and regal charm. Turtle Bay is an area south of Sutton Place also along the East River and it contains blocks of beautiful brownstones as well as the United Nations headquarters. Tudor City is south of Turtle Bay, yet does not extend eastward beyond 1st Ave. A complex of 12 castle-stlye buildings and picturesque courtyards, Tudor City was a planned middle-income village created with the specific intention to revitalize the economically depressed area.
Today, all of these sub-neighborhoods have evolved into prestegious parcels of real estate, filling Midtown East with distinct charm and loads of professionals. Highlights: Skyscrapers, hustle-bustle
