Midtown, on the East Side, from 34th Street to 40th Street, the East River to Madison Avenue.
Murray Hill is a townhouse paradise — of 100 townhouses listed in the area in the 1892 Social Register, 60 are still standing. Yet those single-family Murray Hill homes, many of three and four stories and some renovated with elevators and gyms to match their double Dacor ovens, rub elbows with high-rise condo towers. In Murray Hill, the former business corridors of Madison and Fifth Avenues are being converted into gorgeous new loft-like apartments.
