Rumormongering has always been a popular pastime in Tudor City. In 1925, when the French Company bought up much of the land on Prospect Hill, there were rumors galore ‒ oil had been discovered, a railroad station was planned for the site, the Vanderbilts were the secret buyers, and so on. In the Helmsley era, there was never-ending speculation about the fate of the parks.

And then there was the United Nations rumor, which was so rife in the community that Tudor City View felt obliged to address the issue in its June, 1962 edition.
