Building Description

The Woodstock Tower is a pre-war, landmarked building that majestically rises high above 42nd street, between 1st and 2nd Avenues. Built by Fred F. French in 1929 in the Tudor style, the 459 unit building was originally constructed for pied-à-terre rentals and as a hotel but was later converted into cooperative apartments in 1980.

At 32 stories, it is the tallest building, perhaps the grandest, in the Tudor City complex. It is noted for its series of stepped terraces with commanding views of the river and the city. It has a canopied entrance, a four-story limestone entrance surround, and newly appointed external bricks. There is an elegant two-storied lobby and recently renovated hallways and elevators.

Building Amenities

With a friendly staff on duty 24/7, assistance is always available at the front desk to meet resident needs and for security purposes.

The private courtyard garden provides a serene outdoor space for residents and also serves as a venue for building events, such as barbecues during the warmer months.

The gym, located on the Lobby floor, is open 18 hours each day, from 6 am to 11 pm. It is fully equipped and provides a great selection of workout options.

Laundry facilities are also located on the Lobby floor and can be used by residents daily from 7 am to 10 pm.

Children’s parks and dog runs are located nearby.

Transportation

The area is a transportation hub and is readily accessible with buses on 1st and 2nd avenues, cross-town bus service on 42nd Street, Grand Central Station two avenues away, and highway and tunnel access very close by.

Tudor City Greens

Tudor City Greens boasts two parks with lush gardens that provide a tranquil respite from the hectic city life. The parks are a source of local pride and are the venue for many community activities such as Spring and Fall Planting Days, Annual Art Show, Easter Egg Hunt, Halloween Party, Christmas tree and Menorah lighting, and monthly Concerts in the Park from May through October.

Area Landmarks

There are many notable landmarks in the immediate area. The Ford Foundation building is directly across the street and is heralded for its innovative, large, windowed atrium overlooking the Tudor City parks. The United Nations complex is at the east end of the street. Grand Central Station is two avenues away. Located between the Chrysler Building and the East River, the Woodstock Tower boasts some of the best views in town.
