"Pretty boring street"

East 41st starts off at the East River with a depressing looking Con Ed building and a slightly less depressing but still depressing park. I don't know why anyone would want to hang out in a park right next to a power plant, but it's there. But, once you cross first, into Tudor City territory, there are some really beautiful buildings which serve as a sharp contrast to the sad energy one. They're not beautiful in the brownstone kind of way because they're so big. But, they're great as far as lovely, old apartment buildings go.
The next block (between 1st and 2nd) holds Tudor City. It's a development from the '20's that is entirely built in old English style architecture. There aren't very many windows that face the East River which is a shame but I guess that's because there used to be all slaughterhouses on the bank. There's a little private park here, a local watering hole and it looks like a castle or a village of little castles. It's pretty cool and I know this used to be a bad neighborhood but I think it's pretty pricey around here nowadays. I've never looked up here to live because it's so boring so I'm not the authority on how expensive it is.
The next block holds the Daily News and a bunch of big apartment and condo buildings. There aren't any bars or restaurants to speak of, but there's no shortage of living space right here, that's for sure. The next block holds more apartment buildings and a bizarre little hotel. I don't know why you'd want to stay here of all neighborhoods, but it's still in business so it must do alright.
East 41st right here doesn't have anything to offer as far as neighborhood feel, dining, culture . . nothing. So, it's boring as hell and not exactly the prettiest neighborhood in the city. But, Tudor City is cool . . not cool enough to live up here, but cool enough to take a look at.
