Murray Hill

Murray Hill

The Murray Hill area of New York City has become the go-to destination for young professionals starting out on their careers.  With more affordable rental apartments than Manhattan’s trendier neighborhoods, the area’s star is on the rise.  Locals enjoy a bustling bar scene, plenty of restaurant choices, movie theatres, a huge new Fairway supermarket, and easy subway access to everywhere in the city.
 
If you’re looking for a reasonably priced Murray Hill rental apartment, NoFeeRentals.com has newly renovated furnished and unfurnished studio apartments at 130 East 37th Street.  The building has an elevator and is conveniently located close to buses and subways.
 
Murray Hill lies between 34th and 40th streets, stretching from Madison Avenue to Third Avenue.  However, it is often thought of as extending all the way to the East River.  It is a stone’s throw from Midtown and an easy walk to Grand Central Station.
 
With the United Nations Headquarters on the East River at 43rd Street, it’s no surprise that the area has a large diplomatic presence.  The Consulates General of Mexico and of South Africa have their embassies in Murray Hill, and the missions for China, India, Austria, and Malta are also located here.
 
Other landmarks include the former B.Altman building at 34th Street and Fifth Avenue.  Once a popular department store, it is now home to the CUNY Graduate Center, the New York Public Library’s Science, Industry, and Business Library, and Oxford University Press.   Be sure to check out The Morgan Library and Museum, Scandinavia House, and the Mexican Cultural Institute of New York.
 
Every year, the local Neighborhood Association sponsors the Murray Hill Street Fair, celebrating the area’s history.  There are walking tours of the neighborhood, as well as live music, food vendors, and flea market finds.
