Windsor Tower Overview

Windsor Tower at 5 Tudor City Place between 40th and 41st Streets is the grandest building in the famous Tudor City complex across from the United Nations at the far east end of 42nd Street.

The 7-story top of the brown-brick building is festooned with finials, piers and cartouches some triple-height, multi-paned windows giving the appearance of a Tudor palace on steroids, or at least stilts.

The building's addresses include 701-719 First Avenue, 1-19 Tudor City Place, 371-399 East 40th Street, and 358-368 East 41st Street.

Cynics often presume that they conceal water tanks. In truth, they light the three-story living rooms of 14 apartments, some with terraces trimmed with gargoyles."

The complex, which its developer called "a city within a city," was created by Fred Fillmore French starting in 1925 when he assembled six blockfronts along Prospect Place, a small north-south street west of First Avenue that was lined most with brownstones.

According to a May 15, 1994 article by Christopher Gray in The New York Times, Mr. French had previously erected some luxury residential buildings such as 1140 Fifth Avenue "where he built a squash court into his own roof duplex and then 1010 Fifth Avenue, at 82nd Street, where he occupied the penthouse apartment with a huge roof garden."

"By 1927...
