The Community

BEEKMAN, NYC.  A secluded, tony enclave of Manhattan’s Turtle Bay neighborhood, Beekman is bound by the East River and First Avenue on the east and west, and by 48th to 52nd Street on the south and north, respectively. Comprised of beautiful townhomes, grand co-ops and luxurious condos, Beekman has long been a popular area for wealthy New Yorkers.

Although many try to exaggerate its boundaries, its residents agree: only these few streets can truly be called “Beekman.” The area is named after a descendant of William Beekman (one of the earliest Dutch settlers in New York) who built a mansion near the intersection of First Avenue and 51st Street.

Several generations of the family lived in the home – then known as Mount Pleasant – although it was temporarily overtaken by the British during their occupation of New York in the American Revolution. Buildings ranging from classic East-Side brownstones to the coveted apartments in One Beekman Place fill the tree-lined streets, and inventory in these buildings is always limited.

Many celebrities have also called Beekman home, including Alfred Lundt and Lynne Fontanne (a famed husband-and-wife acting duo), “Wild Bill” Donovan (the “founding father” of the CIA), Prince Aly Khan (descendant of Aga Khan III and husband to Rita Hayworth), Irving Berlin (the songwriter who penned “God Bless America” and countless other hit songs), and Margaretta “Happy” Rockefeller.

Ambassadors and diplomats also call the area home: the permanent mission of Tunisia and the Luxembourg House are located directly on Beekman Place, and a number of other consulates and embassies are in the immediate area owing to the proximity of the United Nations headquarters on east 42nd Street.

Aside from its tony pedigree and exclusive address, residents of Beekman also benefit from a very low crime rate and easy access to the charming Peter Detmold Park, with its sweeping views of the East River. Residents can also avail themselves of New York City’s convenient public transportation via the Second Avenue M15 bus, which connects easily to the E, M, N, R, W, F, Q, 4, 5 and 6 trains.

The Location

NEW YORK CITY, NY.  Home to more than eight million people, the city of New York is a quintessential metropolis in every sense of the word. Whether it be finance, media, diplomacy or arts and culture, the “Big Apple” is consistently a leader of trends and an originator of content on a global scale. This reputation attracts the best thought-leaders and mold-breaking entrepreneurs from across the globe. New York City’s location on one of the world’s largest natural harbors plays a significant part in its role as a hub for global commerce and immigration.

NYC is both the most populous and the most densely populated city in the United States: more than 20 million people live in its broader Metropolitan Statistical Area.

Further, more than 800 languages are spoken in the area (making it the most linguistically diverse city in the world). And of course, more billionaires maintain a residence here than in any other city in the world.

Boasting some of the world’s most respected cultural venues –  from the Lincoln Center to the Theater District, over 24,000 restaurants (including Eleven Madison Park, currently ranked the fourth best restaurant in the world), and 30,000 acres of parks, New York City offers a new and exciting experience each day – and every night. After all, it’s the “city that never sleeps.”
