Elegant, quiet and understated in its sophistication, Turtle Bay lies on the east side of Manhattan between 42nd and 53rd Streets and eastward from Lexington Avenue to the East River. That's worth mentioning because, by dint of its location near the United Nations, stately tree-lined blocks and distinctive international flair, Turtle Bay sometimes seems not to be in Manhattan at all. Despite its supremely central Manhattan location, Turtle Bay is an enticingly laid-back, community-oriented New York neighborhood, and one of the most desirable places to live in New York City.
While the United Nations Building is Turtle Bay's most recognizable architectural landmark, Turtle Bay is also home to as rich an array of architecture as any neighborhood in Manhattan. Elegant 19th-century brownstones adorn tree-lined side streets, while the Tudor City complex near First Avenue and 43rd Street offers a wealth of pre-war apartments. Luxury rental apartments in Turtle Bay are available in a host of shapes and sizes. The apartments for rent at The Belmont come with a suite of amenities that rivals those offered by any luxury rental apartment building in Manhattan. The more modern luxury rental apartments at The Metropolis feature stunning midtown views through floor-to-ceiling windows.
What all apartments for rent in Turtle Bay feature, though, is a unique and uniquely appealing combination of prime Manhattan location, sophisticated international restaurants and cultural attractions, and luxury rental apartments offering top-tier amenities and perks. With its international flair and classically Manhattan luxury, it's easy to see why Turtle Bay is home to some of the most desirable luxury rental apartments in Manhattan.
