Turtle Bay

A small community in Midtown East, Turtle Bay between 43rd and 53rd Street from Lexington Avenue to the East River is world renowned for being home to the United Nations, whose land was originally purchased by John D. Rockefeller Jr. after WWII.

Turtle Bay's renaissance began in 1920 when a number of brownstones and townhouses were purchased and remodeled. Combining all the backyards, a garden esplanade was created. Known as Turtle Bay Gardens, these two blocks are now a designated historic district made up of 11 townhouses.

Turtle Bay offers a number of pocket parks, restaurants, boutiques and shops that line the avenues.

Fun Facts: Turtle Bay Gardens' residents have included Kurt Vonnegut, Katharine Hepburn, Mary Martin and Tyrone Power; E.B. White is said to have written "Charlotte's Web" while living in a duplex on 48th Street inside Turtle Bay Gardens.

Housing Stock: Townhouses, brownstones, rental, co-op and condo high-rise apartment buildings and complexes.
