Turtle Bay Real Estate

When you step onto the grounds of the United Nations, you've not only left Manhattan, but you've exited the United States as well. The UN is considered to be International Territory owned by all of its member nations.

Fortunately, surrounding neighborhoods don't require a visa. Comprised of Sutton and Beekman Place and Turtle Bay, the area is a diplomatic playground and business center as well an enclave of East Side elegance. A highlight of Turtle Bay—between 41st and 53rd Streets, and eastward from Lexington Avenue to the East River—is the UN Plaza and park. Entry is free, and it boasts a beautifully-tended rose garden. An East River stroll is also an easy addition to life here.

Two of the City's most sought-after residential addresses, Sutton Place and Beekman Place comprise the neighboring enclaves of elegant buildings along the East River offering two public parks and a quiet residential setting. With dramatic views of the Queensboro Bridge and Roosevelt Island and easy access to the F.D.R. Drive, these neighborhoods are tiny oases of calm and community amid hectic Midtown commerce.

Though the area is a bit far from the nearest subway on Lexington and Third Avenues, the neighborhood boasts plenty of retail activity, including the vast Bridgemarket Food Emporium just below the Queensboro Bridge. Sutton East Tennis Club, an enclosed winter tennis facility, is another convenient amenity for neighborhood residents.
