In the 19th Century, Murray Hill was the home of the estate section of New York City where wealthy residents, such as J.P. Morgan built large brownstones. If you walk the side streets of Murray Hill today, you can still see many of these hundred year old brownstones. Some of these brownstones serve as single family homes while others have been subdivided and house charming rental apartments. Most of the Murray Hill apartments are not brownstones. Instead, Murray Hill has been the place of a significant amount of high rise building over the last 30 years. As a result, its one of the best places in Manhattan to find reasonably priced apartments with significantly more space than you will find downtown. In addition, nearly all of these high rise buildings offer amenities like doormen, in-building laundry and dry cleaning, and common rooftops. In addition, several of these new buildings have health clubs, swimming pools, parking garages and are even pet friendly.
