If you’re looking for a beautiful space in a desirable area, 820 2nd Avenue is the place for you. The building, which was constructed in 1964, stands 19 floors tall and features amenities such as a lobby attendant, on-site security, and 24-hour access.
Turtle Bay, which is where 820 2nd Avenue calls home, is a neighborhood known for beautiful architecture and views of the East River. The area is not defined by any tourist attractions, but that is part of the appeal. This building is just blocks away from great food, such as Greek seafood at Arva Esiatorio, a warm treat at Ess-a-Bagel, and the Smith & Wollensky steakhouse – Warren Buffetts favorite in New York. Third Ave and Lexington have subway stations that are quite close, making transportation easy. After work, the nightlife in Turtle Bay leaves little to be desired.

    What Our Brokers Have to Say

    The borough of Manhattan south of Central Park is traditionally divided into Midtown, Midtown South, and Lower Manhattan. Midtown East is the Eastern half of Midtown that is bordered by Fifth Avenue to the west, the East River to the east, 59th St. to the north, and 42nd Street to the south. The area is home to the Chrysler Building, Rockefeller Center, and the United Nations Headquarters, and visitors will notice a lot of areas that look familiar because they’ve appeared on postcards and in TV shows.

    Midtown East is primarily a business district and is relatively quiet during the evenings. Traveling around the area and getting to and from nearby districts is easy, especially with the convenient juxtaposition of Grand Central Station, which is not only one of the biggest hubs for public transportation in NYC but also a historic landmark. Nearby subway lines include: 4, 5, 6, N, Q, R, B, D, F, M, E, and 7. If visiting business partners need a place to stay, book rooms in The Langham, The Bernic Hotel, Fitzpatrick Grand Central, or Pod 39.

    Each neighborhood located within Midtown East has unique character and features.

    Grand Central Station: Whether you call it by its official name, Grand Central Terminal, or its nickname, Grand Central, this neighborhood is known for housing Grand Central Station, one of the biggest transportation hubs in NYC. Securing office space here means working alongside companies such as Salesforce, YES Network, Oracle, Metlife, and New York Life Insurance.

    Madison Avenue: Madison Avenue, one of the most well-known streets in America, is home to some of the nation’s most influential businesses.

    Plaza District: The Plaza District houses some of the most premier commercial real estate in NYC. A 10% vacancy leaves potential tenants with plenty of options to join the district’s current tenants, which include Colgate-Palmolive, Bloomberg, and NBC Studios.

    Park Avenue: Park Avenue, originally called Fourth Avenue, houses some of the nation’s most expensive real estate, and some of NYC’s richest CEOs live there. Fortune 500 companies such as Citigroup, Mutual of America, JP Morgan, and Metlife have Park Avenue addresses from here.
