dc.descriptionGardens (landscaped squares) span the north and south side of E. 42nd St. on an overpass street, Tudor City Place; Tudor City is an apartment complex located on the southern edge of Turtle Bay on the East Side of Manhattan. It was the first residential skyscraper complex in the world. The complex was built to bring in middle-class residents who had begun leaving Manhattan for the suburbs. Originally in the two gardens flanking 42nd Street, the south garden featured a "miniaturized" 18-hole golf course. The area where the Tudor Gardens building (Number 2) stands today was the site of tennis courts. Today three garden parks and a children's playground remain; the complex is also linked by stairs to Ralph Bunche Park.
