Turtle Bay is a NYC neighborhood on Midtown Manhattan’s east side—hence it’s frequently referred to as Midtown East. This large Manhattan neighborhood possesses national icons such as the Chrysler Building and Grand Central Terminal, not to mention the headquarters for the United Nations. The latter two mean that the neighborhood is a hub for transportation and cultural diversity. The neighborhood itself is generally secure and peaceful. It’s a bit less vivacious than other NYC districts, making it the perfect spot for older residents and retirees. Oh, and did we mention that Turtle Bay ranks as one of the most livable districts in New York?
