Photo by myself in Tudor City, a gorgeous building complex around 40th Street and First Avenue.
I'm a sucker for pretty architectural details.
This very cool set of tall buildings is raised up from 42nd street, near the United Nations complex. As a pedestrian you have to climb a set of steep stairs to a separate level. The complex has two pretty parks, its own post office and amazing views of the East River.
