Old World Appeal
Named for the Elizabethan Tudor Dynasty, the area's Tudor style residences have a touch of the English cottage or castle about them. Gargoyles, dragons, and other mythic creatures perch on Tudor City rooftops; tapestries and stained glass adorn the lobbies; and building exteriors feature detailed stonework and inscriptions.
