Here's a survey of select awnings in the complex over the last 90 years. Click to enlarge.
|Hotel Tudor, circa 1955. The awning that brought a bit of Miami Beach to Tudor City.|
|The 3-H's, 1930. The three separate entrances were consolidated into one in 1959. |
Today, there's an awning at the sole entrance in Hardwicke Hall.
|The Manor, 1930. A pole-less canopy, it relied on wires for stability.|
|Tudor Tower, No. 25, 1984. The press descend on Tom Hanks under No. 25's canopy in the movie Splash.|
|Hotel Tudor, 42nd Street entrance, 1930. That's the Church of the Covenant to its left, |
and a taxpayer on the right.
|Hotel Tudor, 41st St. entrance, 1930. This was the direct entrance to the cocktail lounge, hence the canopy, another pole-less model. It's no longer in place.|
|Cove Restaurant, circa 1947. Set in No. 45's longtime restaurant space, The Cove had an eight-year run, from 1945-1953, and a modest awning over the entrance to the bar.|
|Essex House, 1930 and 1964. This extra-long canopy no longer exists, making|
Essex House the only building in the complex currently without an awning.
|Windsor Tower, No. 5, 1983. Tudor City's scariest awning thanks to a |
nail-biting sequence in the movie Scarface. See it here.
|Tudor Gardens, No. 2, 2012. Today, this yawning awning is the enclave's longest, |
a natural for grand entrances.
