Description

The 43-story Dag Hammarskjold Tower at 240 East 47th Street in Midtown East is a New York City post-war classic. The condominium sits within sight of the United Nations campus,which lends the Turtle Bay neighborhood a stately international flair. The tower is named after the second Secretary-General of the United Nations, whose commemorative bust stands at the entrance and who is also the namesake for the block-long Dag Hammarskjold Plaza in front of the white-brick skyscraper, which offers a farmers’ market on weekends and preserves direct East River views from even the skyscraper’s lower floors, with view corridors that the skyscraper’s distinctive, angled corner opens further yet. Upper-floor apartments offer spectacular views of the Chrysler Building, the Empire State, and the rest of the Midtown skyline in all its glory. In addition to a full staff, amenities include landscaped public and private gardens, a 43rd-floor swimming pool, a fitness center, a roof deck, a Skyline Lounge and children’s playroom. Residents also get video security, short term cold storage, basement storage, a bike room and on-site parking. Top rated shopping and restaurants–like Sushi Yasuda and Momosan Ramen & Sake–can be found in every direction.
