Where else does 16th-century architecture bump up against skyscrapers next door to the world's most peaceful organization? The calm, semi-elevated neighboorhood known as Tudor City is mainly explorable with the use of staircases and is supposedly the first residential skyscraper community ever developed, according to some prominent area historians and authors. Created as a buffer to the garish hubbub of Midtown East Manhattan, this small 'city within a city' serves as an urban oasis for tourists, residents and (generally speaking) anyone needing a quiet diversion from the day's events. One noteworthy aspect of the area is that parks within its boundaries are privately run despite an attempt by NYC in the mid '70s to make them public. Set out from our Midtown Manhattan hotel and take a walk on the peaceful side in Tudor City.
