    AROUND THE BLOCK
    MURRAY HILL:
    A versatile Midtown neighborhood.
    In the early 1900s, Murray Hill was known as an upscale neighborhood with gorgeous brownstones marked with old NYC charm. Since then, the neighborhood has gotten younger and more affordable with an active nightlife scene and an influx of NYC transplants.
    THE NEIGHBORS:
    City newcomers and people looking for a mellow neighborhood to settle down in.
    Today, Murray Hill is known as a popular destination for undergraduates and graduates.
    Residents make homes in spacious brownstones, and enjoy quiet mornings at the coffee shops and near schools.
    WHAT TO EXPECT:
    A lively yet manageable neighborhood close to work in Midtown.
    Murray Hill’s location makes it an ideal neighborhood for many professionals that work in Midtown. For many commuters, the proximity to Grand Central Station is especially convenient.
    It’s also a popular after-work destination. A myriad of happy hour specials attract those looking to unwind after the workday with a beer and a quick bite.
    THE LIFESTYLE:
    Walks along the East River, diverse and affordable dining, and a spirited bar scene.
    During the day, Murray Hill can feel like a sleepy village with quiet, tranquil streets.
    Out on the East River, you’ll find a constant flux of locals jogging on the running path or simply admiring the view.
    Murray Hill isn’t known for fine dining, but the neighborhood is sprinkled with smaller and more intimate cafes, bagel shops, and brunch spots that are favorites among residents.
    A well known area in the East 20s, affectionately nicknamed "Curry Hill" by residents, specializes in Indian Restaurants, and farther west in the 30s is “Koreatown”, popular for its authentic Korean noodle dishes and karaoke lounges.
    At night, Murray Hill becomes a destination for affordable nightlife. Saturday nights can feel like one big homecoming party.
    Even if you didn’t go to school together, the atmosphere is congenial and welcoming. The no-frills bar scene attracts regulars and mainstays back each weekend, and patrons quickly build up a friendly and warm rapport with each other.

    Easy access to the pulse of the NYC arts and culture scene.
    Murray Hill isn’t considered the center of the fast, glamorous NYC lifestyle. Instead, the neighborhood is a decidedly no-frills, down-to-earth pocket of the city.
    Still, Murray Hill isn’t without any popular cultural destinations. The New York Public Library and Bryant Park are draws for New Yorkers across the city as both hold wildly popular events and programs all year-round.
