About Murray Hill Neighborhood

Neighborhood Map image

This versatile Midtown neighborhood bordering the East River and Grand Central can feel by turns both low-key and lively. By day it fills with young professionals heading to work, and nightlife in the numerous bars and neighboring Koreatown is upbeat and congenial. By Saturday, however, the tree-lined streets quiet, and joggers flood the riverfront. Murray Hill is something like a down-to-earth pocket of the center of the universe, with an ideal commute for any midtown employee. It is also fast-growing: many sleek new buildings and intimate brunch cafes have popped up beside old-school landmark mansions and row houses. Long-time residents say they welcome the new additions, and look forward to added green spaces as the neighborhood gains the attention of more developers.
