Turtle Bay lies in Midtown East between 42nd and 53rd Streets, and east from Lexington Avenue to the East River. That's worth noting because, thanks to the very un-Midtown Manhattan environment of stately tree-lined blocks and distinctively international flair, Turtle Bay sometimes seems not to be in Manhattan at all. Turtle Bay’s sophisticated languor may have something to do with the presence of The United Nations and a host of embassies -- and with them a diverse, international community -- but the appeal of Turtle Bay’s enticingly laid-back, community-oriented feel is distinctly its own.
While the United Nations Building is Turtle Bay's most recognizable architectural landmark -- and one of the most recognizable in all of New York City -- Turtle Bay is also home to as rich an array of architecture as any neighborhood in Manhattan. Elegant 19th-century brownstones line tree-lined side streets, and the Tudor City complex near First Avenue and 43rd Street offers a wealth of pre-war co-ops. Those old-Manhattan buildings define Turtle Bay for most New Yorkers, but some new construction condominiums have brought Turtle Bay up to date, and added some very intriguing new condo listings to a neighborhood that had plenty of appeal already. The pre-war condominium conversion at 142 East 49th Street offers a classic Turtle Bay condo experience, while its neighbor at 212 East 47th offers a condo conversion option of more recent vintage. New construction condominiums such as the unmistakably Trump-y Trump World Tower and The Alexander offer some very contemporary condo comforts.
Turtle Bay condos cover just about the full spectrum in Manhattan real estate, but the one thing that apartments in Turtle Bay feature is a unique and uniquely appealing combination of prime Manhattan location and access to a wide array of culinary and cultural attractions. That’s Turtle Bay.
