|Where the New York business man can live near his job ‒ this is the basic reason why Tudor City received such unanimous endorsement. This architect's perspective shows the earlier construction planned for the development. Future units will preserve the same architectural design. Note the broad, paved streets and spacious parks.|
|Here are a few of the newspaper clippings describing Tudor City. Newspapers throughout the country, in news and editorial columns, carried details of the proposed Fred F. French development. The soundness and practicality of the development struck a responsive chord in the press. "A Cure for Strap Hanging," the New York Sun called Tudor City. In the following pages are reprinted some of the editorial comments on the development.|
Assorted photographs that might require a bit of explanation as to why they are included in this post.In our first example, the picture depicts a melon about to be eaten, but another question lingers. What does all this have to do with Tudor City?

Dear Sir: We would like to express, formally and publicly, our appreciation for your great work in behalf of the walkers of this city. You have added comfort to what was already a pleasure. Our aims are much alike, and it is our sincere hope that this public statement may serve to further our mutual cause ‒ self-locomotion.
We live in Tudor City because (a) we like it there and (b) from there you can walk to wherever you want to go. We represent an organized revolt against traffic tie-ups, subway jams, all the evils of congestion. We walk ‒ and get there. We use your heels. And we thank you for all you have done to make this movement a vital factor in our city's life.
