Recognized for its quiet and comfortable ambiance, adorned with luxury high-rises and plenty of high-end property, Murray Hill has come a long way since its days as farmland. The neighborhood derives its name from the Murray family 18th-century Quaker merchants dedicated shipping and overseas trade.
The diverse residential options accentuate the area’s elegance. Buyers/renters are both surprised and enchanted by the luxury residential high-rises, beautiful turn-of-the-century townhouses, exquisite pre-war buildings, brownstones, and well-maintained co-ops and condos found in the area.
Due to its prime Midtown location, Murray Hill real estate has flourished in recent years; it is a quick walk to midtown's business district, and a short ride to downtown's diverse draws. However, the many restaurants, cafés, boutiques, bookstores, lounges, and a very popular bar scene illuminate this neighborhood’s own slice of downtown flair.
