Get to know Murray Hill

Stretching from 34th to 42nd and Fifth Avenue to the East River, Murray Hill owes its name to a family that once owned a farm here. Mrs. Murray’s main claim to fame was having once entertained British soldiers and, by distracting them, provided George Washington with time to escape the city. Later, at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th centuries, it enjoyed a period as one of Manhattan’s most fashionable neighborhoods — a legacy that lives on in the handsome row houses on many blocks between Third and Fifth avenues as well as the Morgan Library. They now share the neighborhood with newer apartment blocks. While Murray Hill may not be a major destination for residents of other parts of the city, that seems to be fine with those who live there and enjoy its low-key atmosphere and convenience to Midtown and Gramercy.
