The Woodstock Tower is a pre-war, landmarked building that majestically rises high above 42nd street, between 1st and 2nd Avenues. Built by Fred F. French in 1929 in the Tudor style, the 459 unit building was originally constructed for pied-à-terre rentals and as a hotel but was later converted into cooperative apartments in 1980.
At 32 stories, it is the tallest building, perhaps the grandest, in the Tudor City complex. It is noted for its series of stepped terraces with commanding views of the river and the city. It has a canopied entrance, a four-story limestone entrance surround, and newly appointed external bricks. There is an elegant two-storied lobby and recently renovated hallways and elevators.
