Tudor City is a historic district in Midtown Manhattan developed in the 1920s by Fred F. French. Named for the Elizabethan Tudor Dynasty, the area’s Tudor style residences have a touch of the English cottage or castle about them. Gargoyles, dragons, and other mythic creatures perch on Tudor City rooftops; tapestries and stained glass adorn the lobbies; and building exteriors feature detailed stonework and inscriptions. The complex includes restaurants, a hotel, grocery, a gourmet deli, and convenience stores, a hair salon, laundry and dry cleaners. An afternoon in one of Tudor City’s parks is typically tranquil, far removed from the frenetic pace of the rest of midtown. Windsor Tower is the pinnacle of Tudor City living. This impeccably well run building includes a enormous fitness center, full time doorman, laundry room and convenience store in the lobby. Residents enjoy a sense of community, easy access to public transportation and a relaxing respite from busy city life.
