Tudor City, in Detail

Tudor City, NYC
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.

I love those type of details too- plus a room with a view!

The attention to detail in old architecture gives these buildings such character and personality!

I went there for the first time yesterday. The perfect viewing spot for Manhattanhenge.
