Murray Hill Apartments
Manhattan

The diversity, lower rents than surrounding neighborhoods, and a convenient location make Murray Hill a desirable location for those seeking to live in Manhattan.

The fact that Murray Hill real estate has increased in value several times the past decade shows how up-and-coming the neighborhood continues to be. The close proximity of Grand Central near the northwestern part of the neighborhood provides multiple transportation options, while the serene St. Vartan's Park provides an escape from city life. The neighborhood also offers diverse food options, from Cambodian restaurant Num Pang Sandwich Shop to the famous 2nd Avenue Deli. Featuring everything from the works of Edgar Allan Poe to manuscripts from classic authors, The Morgan Library & Museum is also in the area, located on 225 Madison Avenue.

The history of Murray Hill dates back to the 18th century, when a Quaker merchant named Robert Murray moved his family from Ireland to New York and built a house near what is today Park Avenue and 36th Street. His farm was successful throughout the century, and was even said to have saved a large number of American troops when Mrs. Murray entertained British generals with cake and wine, delaying their haste in pursuing American General Putnam's march. By the mid-19th century, upper and upper-middle class were the primary demographics in Murray Hill (J.P. Morgan built a mansion there in 1882). The 20th century saw a similarly upper class population, and today Murray Hill houses many upper class young professionals that take advantage of its location and lively restaurant-and-bar scene.

More about Murray Hill

Murray Hill runs north of 34th Street, South of 42nd Street, East of Madison Avenue, and West of the East River. Many locals also include the blocks south to 30th Street and north to 45th Street. To the north, Murray Hill borders “Curry Hill,” a well known neighborhood similar to Murray Hill, but with a large Indian population and a high concentration of Indian restaurants.

Accessing Murray Hill is easy. Aside from simply arriving at Grand Central and walking a block or two south, visitors can access the lower part of Murray Hill via the 33rd Street subway (the 6 line) on Park Avenue, between East 32nd and East 33rd. Many bus lines, including the M101, M102, QM2, and QM4, also run along 3rd Avenue.
