Equal parts luxury and charm, Murray Hill is a small residential enclave near the center of Manhattan, rooted between 34th and 40th Streets, and between Madison and 3rd Avenues. The neighborhood has steadily increased in popularity by offering a true urban experience for NYC residents.
Murray Hill is a bustling neighborhood nestled between the commercial district of Midtown Manhattan, Midtown East and Kips Bay neighborhoods. Known for having a great assortment of dining establishments including excellent Indian cuisine, Murray Hill is also in easy proximity to Madison Square Park, Gramercy Park and Bryant Park.
Side streets in the neighborhood are filled with classic New York City townhouses while you can also find attractive modern high rise rental buildings and condos. Public transit gives ample access to the rest of the city, while a lively mix of bars, shopping and cultural attractions like the Empire State Building on Fifth Avenue keep the local area interesting and easy to explore.
Murray Hill can be both quiet and quick-paced, with children’s activities ranging from exploring the educational Museum of Mathematics to playground fun in Madison Square Park. Plus, an easy subway trip from Murray Hill, Long Island City and the cuisine of Queens beckon residents across the East River.
