Get to know Beekman

Even longtime New York City residents may have never visited the small neighborhood of Beekman, or the tiny two-block-long street it is named after: Beekman Place. The neighborhood is tucked away over on the East Side, running between First Avenue and the East River and 49th and 51st. The street’s most famous building is the house of Paul Rudolph (1918-1997), one of America’s leading modernist architects, but it is another landmark that defines the neighborhood’s character: The United Nations headquarters looms over the southern end of the street. A number of consulates can be found in Beekman, while diplomats seek out apartments in the largely prewar buildings (and in the few postwar buildings, too). For Beekman’s residents, the area is an ideal contradiction: It sits on Manhattan’s grid with the bustle of Midtown nearby, and yet it manages to remain a leafy and quiet world of its own.
