Turtle Bay’s street scenes are a mix of old and new, meshing glassy, new construction towers with the classic facades of older brownstones, offering wide appeal for its diverse mix of residents. From afar, the Chrysler Building, an icon of Art Deco design, firmly marks the neighborhoods location from the skyline. Despite its metered pace and steady flow — characteristic of many neighborhoods on the East Side — Turtle Bay can boast its status as home to some important city landmarks. By example, Tudor City is one of the world’s first high-rise apartment complexes, and the Ford Foundation houses an impeccably curated garden in its massive atrium year round. Additionally, the United Nations headquarters makes its home in the Turtle Bay neighborhood on the East River, and the plot of land on which it stands is technically under its own administration; yet, the businesses, cultural institutions, and diplomatic missions that dot the neighborhood suggest the broad scope of its residents and tenants.
