Murray Hill is centrally located in the heart of midtown Manhattan, running from East 34th to East 42nd streets between Madison Ave and the East River. With its central location which borders Grand Central Terminal, the neighborhood offers residents a convenient commute with easy access to all corners of the city. The neighborhood is only a short walk from many of midtown’s most iconic buildings and attractions including the Empire State Building, Chrysler Building, Brant Park, the New York Public Library and the United Nations. Murray Hill’s proximity to the UN as well as its supply of historic pre-war brownstones and mansions has made it a popular location for foreign embassies and diplomatic missions. The neighborhood is also home to a bevy of casual restaurants, coffeeshops, pubs, and sports bars, which when coupled with the neighborhood’s abundance of tree-lined streets, historic 19th century brownstones and verdant parks gives Murray Hill a distinctive college-town vibe.
