Tudor City NYC

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.

Murray Hill NYC

It's been said that Murray Hill is sometimes a tale of two cities. The landmarks, stately row houses and historic, converted carriage homes reveal this neighborhood's dual identities, as this once colonial spread from East 34th to 42nd Street along Madison Ave down to the East River now boasts a modern mashup of equal-parts young professional loft-loungers, college hipster vibes and old-world charms, all mixing it up among the various diplomats and United Nations employees who live and thrive in this underrated local district. With Tudor City's unique area looming from its hilly area in the northeast corner to the clubby-type hangouts galor for the young (and young at heart) to the heavy East-Asian influence of curry and spice cafes dotting Lexington and 28th, Murray Hill can satiate even the most intrepid urban explorer's need for nook and cranny exploration!
