Named after the Murray family in the 18th century, Murray Hill was primarily farmland. The neighborhood has come a long way since with no shortage of throbbing nightlife, swanky restaurants and cozy cafes. Known for its large collection of townhouses, Murray Hill also offers plenty of hi-rise condominiums loaded with amenities and even some landmark carriage houses.
Murray Hill attracts young professionals, students and families with its affordable housing, convenience to midtown and public transportation. The area is also situated ideally for traveling to neighboring areas such as Gramercy and Union Square.
