Tudor City Historic District

Tudor City Historic District

Tudor City, Manhattan

Tudor City is located on portions of four blocks between East 40th and East 43rd Streets, First and Second Avenues, in an area once known as Prospect Hill. A pioneering venture in private urban renewal, Tudor City is an early and eminently successful attempt to implement the principles of Garden City planning in a high density urban environment.

The significance of Tudor City to the architectural history of New York is multifaceted. It stands as the well-conceived descendant and culmination of the "communal" complexes which began, in New York, which such projects as the Home Buildings in Cobble Hill. Tudor City insured the return to middle-class respectability of midtown's East Side, which had begun with Sutton Place and Beekman Terrace. Similarly, Tudor City became the most extravagant example of Tudor Revival architecture—a tradition which moved during the early twentieth century from suburban mansions to urban apartment buildings. The complex is a premier example of an architectural design sensitive to its physical context (through its siting and detailing) and to its complex program (through the integration of services with "efficiency" apartments).

That Tudor City has been emulated in later developments across the country is testimony to its importance. As a model for apartment building complexes with a distinct "sense of place," Tudor City inspired Knickerbocker Village, built by the French Company and the Reconstruction Finance Corporation, as well as First Houses and Harlem River Houses, both designated New York City Landmarks, and Battery Park City.

The urban renewal venture of Tudor City was the enterprise of the Fred F. French Company, an organization infused with the enthusiasm of its clever and diligent founder. The project was conceived in 1925, financed by the company's revolutionary stock-issue plan, and designed by staff architects under the supervision of H. Douglas Ives. The assemblage of property, accomplished in a very short time, was the largest site amassed in Manhattan until that time. Predating French's development and standing in the middle of the assembled property was the six-story Prospect Hill Apartment Building of 1925 designed with a Tudor entrance.

This structure is also included in the historic district. To this building French added ten residential structures, designed as apartment hotels, apartment buildings, and a transient hotel. Except for the latter, all were designed in the Tudor Revival style, which had been popularized in suburban residences and then adapted for urban multiple dwellings. The Tudor skyline of the complex is complemented at ground level by human-scaled spaces, fine ornament, and a series of stained glass windows ranging from those with lightly tinted non-figural designs to scenes depicting the history of New York.

Like the nearly contemporary corporate counterpart at Rockefeller Center, Tudor City is a "city within a city." Set off from the New York grid by a change of land grade from the flat midtown streets to the slope of Prospect Hill, it is also distinguished by a central landscaped core and by Tudor City Place, a private street partially lined by shops and other services available to the white-collar tenants for whom the project was built. Tudor City is remarkable for its generous provision of light and air, and for its efficient and attractive apartments.

This original phase of construction was complete by 1932. In 1954-56 the French company constructed another residential unit, Tudor City Gardens, which is not in the Tudor design vocabulary, but is included in the historic district as a subsequent product of the influential Fred F. French Company.

Also included in the historic district and standing on Prospect Hill since 1871 is the Presbyterian Church of the Covenant, designed by J.C. Cady. Cady later gained prominence as the architect of such significant commissions as the Metropolitan Opera House and the Romanesque wing of the American Museum of Natural History. Cady designed many churches in the city, the Church of the Covenant being his first. Of the original structure, only the church auditorium remains. The eastern half of the structure was replaced in 1927 with church offices and caretaker's residence in a style sympathetic to Tudor City, then under construction.

But for the most part, Prospect Hill had been a neighborhood of rowhouses; the four surviving houses are included in the historic district. A testimony to the nineteenth-century fabric that was transformed by the large urban renewal project, they were designed by two different architectural offices, the prominent firm of Hubert & Pirsson and the prolific architect, John Sexton.

Finally, the two private greens and two public parks are included in the district. The private greens were intended to attract prospective tenants to a humane residential enclave in the middle of the city. The way of life Fre
