Living in Murray Hill
Bordered by emblematic monuments like the Empire State Building and Grand Central Station, Murray Hill is a residential neighborhood tucked away from Midtown’s hustle and bustle. It was a desirable zip code for the city’s middle class at the end of the 1800s, and much of the Beaux-Arts architecture from this time period is perfectly preserved. Pre-war townhouses and Italianate mansions characterize this charming pocket of Manhattan. Cultural gems like the Morgan Library and Museum and Scandinavia House combine with the Indian restaurants of Curry Hill and boutiques of Madison Avenue. Popular with pet lovers, families and professionals alike for its laid-back atmosphere, Murray Hill invites a slower pace of life.
