A lovely oasis of calm on the outskirts of Midtown, Murray Hill residents enjoy both the bustle of Manhattan, and a place to escape from it. It encompasses a relatively small area in the 30s and 40s, between Madison Avenue and Third Avenues. Murray Hill is a neighborhood of modern, well-constructed high-rises and tidy, well kept blocks. The area has a comfortable, residential feel.
- The Pierpont Morgan Library, with its special exhibitions, is one of New York’s Gilded Age gems.
- It’s a great neighborhood for strolling, as traffic is diverted to surrounding avenues.
- Many inexpensive ethnic restaurants fill the neighborhood, most notably the wonderful Indian establishments along Lexington Avenue in the 30s, an area known as Curry Hill.
- The area is in close proximity to the Midtown business district, and to the trendy clubs and high-profile restaurants of the Flatiron District.
- Head west to Herald Square, a nearby shopping mecca and focal point of the Marcy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.
The Lexington Avenue subway provides a fast, convenient north-south connection. Residents can walk to work in Midtown, or hop on a subway for a 10-minute ride to Wall Street. The nearby Queens Midtown Tunnel leads to major NY airports and beyond that, to the beaches of Long Island. A short walk to Grand Central gives you the choice of several subway lines and Metro North trains.
This is a neighborhood of single professionals and young families. Its tidy tree-lined blocks reflect the involvement of strong block associations. People who live in Murray Hill care about their neighborhood, and that care is reflected in the well-kept pocket parks, dog runs, and the other residential amenities. If you’d like a home that feels a world away from it all in the middle of the city, Murray Hill is for you.
