BLOG: Renter’s Guide, Murray Hill Edition
Looking for a great no-fee apartment in NYC? And how about living in a neighborhood with a truly distinctive character? You might want to consider a residence in Murray Hill. This picturesque part of Midtown Manhattan is steeped in exciting restaurants, great bars and pubs, cultural attractions, and, of course, transportation.
Walk This Way
New York City is a perennially wonderful place for a stroll, and Murray Hill’s tranquil, tree-thronged streets lend themselves to lazy morning ambles with your partner — or your four-legged furry friend. As soon as you step out of your no-fee apartment at Murray Park or Laurence Towers, you find yourself in a walking wonderland. Along the way, admire the brownstones, with their wrought iron balconies and wooden shutters, which characterize the neighborhood. Of course, Murray Hill edges onto the East River, too. Endless strolls along the waterfront await, providing a perfect opportunity to drink in vistas across the glinting water. And if you’re looking for something a bit more strenuous than a leisurely afternoon constitutional, round up a couple of friends and make use of the basketball and handball courts of St. Vartan Park.
Binge on Culture
Murray Hill contains many of NYC’s best-known architectural and cultural institutions. Whet your appetite for politics with a visit to the iconic headquarters of the United Nations, with its awe-inspiring Secretariat Building and General Assembly Hall. Practice your digital photography skills on the city’s instantly recognizable landmarks, including the Chrysler Building, the Rockefeller Center complex, and the Empire State Building. Call in to Grand Central Terminal to admire the celestial ceiling, devour fresh seafood at the Oyster Bar, and indulge in some quality people watching. For an off-the-beaten-trail escapade, explore the Sniffen Court Historic District, the picturesque cul-de-sac that was once a collection of stables, or get a taste of Nordic culture at the ever-informative Scandinavia House. No two days in Murray Hill are ever the same.
Eat, Drink, Be “Murray”
Where even to start with Murray Hill’s food and drink offerings? Perhaps a glass of something cold, effervescent, and refreshing at The Ginger Man, a craft beer bar boasting 70-odd drafts on tap — from lagers to stouts to sours. The Liberty, meanwhile, mixes classic cocktails in Old New York-style surroundings. For dinner, tuck in to a signature mutton chop at Keens Steakhouse, or tend to your Mexican cravings with lashings of smoky black bean soup at Baby Bo’s Cantina. Feeling like Korean in Korea Town? Hit the new 5-star restaurant, Atomix, for dishes as beautiful as they are tasty. Like your dishes loaded with even more spice? Immediately south of Murray Hill lies a thoroughfare of exceptional restaurants serving up the best Indian food you’ve ever tasted in NYC. It’s one of many reasons you’ll never want to move from your Murray Hill apartment.
