This quaint village is extremely small, consisting of approximately two hundred and fifty homes; it spans only five residential streets and two avenues.
Its make up consists mostly of Italian Americans. Its residents consist of approximately six hundred people, mostly families. Most of its inhabitants have lived there for many years.
The village was incorporated in the late eighteen hundreds and has since flourished. Tudor Village hosts suburban tree-lined streets with what is referred to as the "Tudor Malls" in its center, boasting floral arrangements throughout.
The village is also home to Tudor Park, a 20-acre (81,000 m2) recreational park which features a baseball field, racquetball courts, picnic area, fountain and swimming pool as well as a play area with slides, swings and almost everything else one would expect to find in a suburban park.
Located on the southeast end of the village are another baseball field and benches and shaded areas for resting.
