Murray Hill

Neighborhood Image

Murray Hill is a neighborhood in midtown Manhattan in New York City. Pre-war buildings and post-college co-eds fill the streets in Murray Hill. Although this boisterous locale is known for its raucous nightlife and hip cafes, Murray Hill offers more than countless places to party. Murray Hill runs from 40th Street down to about 27th Street, and from Fifth Avenue over to the East River, according to the neighborhood association. The small Murray Hill Historic District between Lexington and Park Avenues is largely 19th-century brownstones and rowhouses, while Park Avenue has towers with co-ops and high-end rental apartments. Tucked between Midtown Manhattan on the north and Kips Bay on the south, Murray Hill is ideal for those seeking a pedestrian commute.

Things to do:

1) Morgan Library & Museum - A complex of buildings, with the ornate private library of famed financier Pierpont Morgan as its centerpiece. The entrance is light, airy and expansive, thanks to cathedral ceilings and glass walls. There is a lovely café, research library and performance space; temporary exhibitions also held.

 

2) Cask Bar & Kitchen - The perfect bar/apps/dinner trifecta making you feel right at home no matter your plans.  Cask has an extensive (and constantly rotating) menu of craft beers and good wines, and their "rustic" food menu is a force to be reckoned with.
