Fun Facts and History of Turtle Bay

Turtle Bay originated as a farm given to two Englishmen by the Dutch governor of New Amsterdam in the 16th century. After the British took control of the colony in 1664, the area became a more public shelter from the harsh weather of the East River, as well as a shipyard after the American Revolution.

During the Civil War, the area housed an army enrollment office but was still largely pastoral until developers filled it with brownstones in the late 19th century. Throughout the early 20th century, with the influx of immigrants and heavy industrialization, the area became inundated with factories, plants, and manufacturing companies.

The construction of the UN campus between 1948 and 1952 opened the area up for high-rise buildings, which led to much of the neighborhood’s gentrification and open air feel. One of the oldest high rise apartment complexes, Tudor City, calls Turtle Bay it’s home.


Turtle Bay Buildings

Part of the attractiveness of Turtle Bay is the variety of living space, in both size and price. Residents live in historical brownstones, luxury high-rises, mid-priced doorman buildings, and walk ups. The Turtle Bay Gardens Historic District, which houses stucco brownstones with individual backyards, features some of the most charming architecture in the area. Aside from residential buildings, the area is also home to a wide variety of art deco buildings.


Atmosphere of Turtle Bay

Turtle Bay is home to two of New York’s most important landmarks, the Chrysler Building and the UN Headquarters. However, there’s more to this neighborhood than just the landmarks. Residents that live here pride themselves on the community feel of the neighborhood.

The 2,000 member Turtle Bay Association actively works to preserve the history of the area and the quality of life in the blocks extending from 42nd to 59th and the East River to Lexington. It’s not hard to see why residents are so devoted — with numerous public parks, a high safety rating (security from the UN is prevalent throughout the neighborhood), a variety of upscale restaurants next to affordable eateries, and a wide range of living options, both young professionals and families can find what they are looking for in Turtle Bay.


Family Score for Turtle Bay

While Turtle Bay is very close to the hustle and bustle of Midtown, the neighborhood is mostly quiet. Probably the safest neighborhood in Manhattan, thanks to UN security, this neighborhood is a great place to raise a family, with housing options both large and small, a good school system, and easy access to healthcare facilities. Plus, your kids could do worse than growing up next to the UN.


Notable Schools in Turtle Bay

The Department of Education does not operate any public schools in Turtle Bay. However, students who live in this area are zoned for other schools such as:

  • PS 59 Beekman Hill International: Lenox Hill
  • IS 104 Simon Baruch School: Gramercy Park
  • Art and Design High School

  • Lexington Avenue/59th Street: Access to the 4, 5, 6, N, R, and W trains.
