Facts

  • Tudor City was meant merely for middle-class society.
  • Its 12 buildings contain 3,000 apartments, a hotel, shops, restaurants, a post office and two small private parks.
  • Fred F. French Company developed the early urban renewal in the Tudor Gothic style.
  • It took around three years - from 1925 to 1928 - to build the 'large-scale production'.
  • The whole complex grounds are elevated by around two stories above street level, separating the quiet gardens and lanes from the noise of highways and major city streets.
  • Prospect, Tudor and Winsdor Towers all feature west sides with light wells and ornaments, while east sides have no decorations whatsoever except elaborate rooftops.
