Tudor City: A Serene Wooded Escape From The City.


Manhattan is dotted by many neighborhood or “pocket parks”, “all with a bit of peace in every nook“. If you make a left on 41st Street you’ll find, Tudor City, a serene wooded escape from the city.

“One of the most beautiful small parks is truly hidden in plain sight. The privately maintained Tudor City Greens, with charming pebbled paths, dazzlingly maintained vegetation and even one original 1927 lamppost.

The south side especially has the look of a botanical garden, with varied shades of green (and yellow and purple and red) leaves placed in strategic contrast. The view is dominated by Tudor-style apartment buildings of the enclave, named a city historic district in 1988”.

The residents of the Tudor City neighborhood have free access to these public, “secret” parks and enjoy such events as an Easter Egg Hunt, Spring Concert Series (May through September 7th), Halloween Party (October 31st–6pm), Fall Planting Day November 6th—10am to 2pm), Menorah Lighting (December 1st–6pm), Decorating for the Holidays (December 4th — 11am) and the Christmas Tree Lighting (December 9th —6pm ).

The neighborhood has a grocery/deli, a café, cleaner and even its own highly rated southern Italian restaurant, Convivio.
