Turtle Bay

Filled with diplomats, doctors, lawyers and business people, Turtle Bay can be described as a neighborhood with wealth, prestige and history. Located in Midtown East, Turtle Bay extends from 43rd Street to 53rd Street and is bordered by Lexington Avenue to the West and to the East by the East River. This neighborhood is also home the United Nations which is located on First Avenue. Due to the amount of security needed for the United Nations, police presence is prevalent; therefore, Turtle Bay is considered one of the safest places to live in New York City. Originally a forty acre farm, now this neighborhood’s tree lined streets are filled with restored townhouses, co-op buildings as well as many luxury high rise condominiums. Perhaps the most noticeable residential building is the Trump World Tower which is located across from the UN on 48th Street and First Avenue and is said to be the largest residential building in the world. Turtle Bay is also home to many fine restaurants and a very popular nightlife as well as beautiful parks such as the Dag Hammarskjöld Plaza Park and many others which do contain dog runs.
