Beautiful space is available at 885 2nd Avenue , a building in Turtle Bay. The building sets itself apart with a sleek black glass exterior, a beautiful open lobby, and high ceilings. The building, also known as the One Dag Hammarskjold Plaza, was constructed in 1972.
885 2nd Avenue is located in Turtle Bay, 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. 885 2nd Avenue is just blocks away from 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 stations that are quite close, making transportation easy. After work, the nightlife in Turtle Bay leaves little to be desired.

    What Our Brokers Say About Midtown East Office Space

    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.
