Murray Hill (Queens) Apartments
Queens

Murray Hill is a small, lower middle class neighborhood in northeastern Queens (not to be confused with the Murray Hill in Manhattan's Midtown East) in what was once the Town of Flushing.

It is south of Whitestone, east of Downtown Flushing, north of Queensborough Hill, and west of Flushing proper. The entire area of Murray Hill is only .52 square miles, although it is home to over 26,000 residents.

Like its Manhattan cousin, Murray Hill was named for the same wealthy family that owned properties in both New York City and the Town of Flushing. Like Flushing’s various suburbs, Murray Hill was once home to a large population of Irish and Italian immigrants from the late 19th to late 20th centuries, but has experienced a huge shift in demographics over the past 30 or so years. The community is now almost 50% Asian, with a large white (30%) and Hispanic (25%) presence.

More about Murray Hill

A recent influx of Korean immigrants in the past few decades has turned Murray Hill into a second “Koreatown”, in much the same way downtown Flushing has become the second Chinatown of New York City. The stretch of Northern Blvd in Murray Hill is also distinctly Korean, with a large number of Korean storefronts and restaurants.

Murray Hill is the location of the Queens Historical Society, based in a Dutch-English colonial house called the Kingsland Homestead built in 1785 that was once the residence of the Murray family. The Murray family was responsible for the tree nursery in Flushing that gave the neighborhood much of its low-key suburban look and feel for over a hundred years (many of Flushing’s streets, to this day, are taken from tree names). Murray Hill is also the home of the Voelker Orth Museum, as well as the Bird Sanctuary and Victorian Garden of Queens.

Murray Hill has two commercial shopping areas centered around Murray Hill Plaza and Seoul Plaza. Flushing Meadows Corona Park is within walking distance from the southern section of the neighborhood, as is Kissena Corridor Park and Kissena Park. Queens College lies further south and is within driving distance. Popular restaurants include Hahm Ji Bach (Korean), Mad For Chicken, Picnic Garden, and Dosa Hut (Indian).

Transportation is available via the 7 train at the Flushing terminus and via the Long Island Rail Road at the Port Washington Branch. Buses that run to Murray Hill are shared with Flushing, and include the Q12, Q13, Q15, Q16, Q19, Q20 A/B, Q25, Q26, Q27, Q28, Q34, Q44, Q65, and Q66. The major thoroughfare is Northern Blvd.
