Why You Should Choose Murray Hill
With a Downtown edge and Uptown glamor, Murray Hill is high on the list of must-live neighborhoods in NYC. And with its food scene, charming architecture, nightlife, and quick-commute location, it’s easy to see why the area is popular with everyone from fashionistas to Wall Street traders. Add to that the amenity-filled, no-fee rentals you’ll find in Murray Park and Laurence Towers, and tree-lined Murray Hill is truly an ideal place to call home. Let’s see why:
Whether you work in Midtown or Downtown, Murray Hill’s location can’t be beaten thanks to easy access to trains, buses, and Citi Bike stations. Want to take the scenic route to work? Just head to the water and hop on the East River Ferry that will have you Downtown in no time.
An easy commute doesn’t just mean less stress during rush hour but more time for enjoying Murray Hill’s singular delights with the important people in your life.
A Foodie’s Paradise
While you could spend the night in at your no-fee Murray Hill rental and cook in your well-equipped kitchen, you’ll be tempted to explore the culinary scene in the area.
Step into the minimal and chic Kajitsu—a Japanese restaurant dedicated to the practice of “shojin,” which places a particular focus on the quality, freshness, and beauty of the food being served. Their menu changes seasonally, but the high caliber of their vegetarian menu stays evergreen.
For a more carnivorous culinary experience, Wolfgang’s Steakhouse gives you a chance to roll up your sleeves and indulge in the most mouthwatering, cuts-like-butter steak you’ve ever had the pleasure to consume. Start off with their crispy crab cakes, then work your way through their porterhouse for two—even if you get it just for yourself.
One of the most pleasant parts of living in Murray Hill is access to some of the city’s best outdoor activities and greenspace. So, pack a cooler, grab a picnic blanket, and get out there and explore. For a kid-friendly afternoon that’s just a few blocks away, Madison Square Park is a tranquil oasis with one of the city’s choicest playgrounds. Enjoy an afternoon in the sun chatting with friends in Bryant Park as you sit on the iconic green bistro chairs dispersed throughout the area. Or grab a drink from the Bryant Park Grill.
Sightseeing in Your Backyard
New Yorkers don’t often get the chance or the time to explore the city’s most famous landmarks. But in Murray Hill, you’re within 15 minutes of some of the biggest ones. Take a ride to the top at
the nearby Empire State Building. Watch the crowds scurry about the magnificent architecture of Grand Central Terminal. Or indulge in a little art deco with a trip to the lobby of the Chrysler Building.
No matter what aspect you enjoy most, Murray Hill gives you a chance to do it all. Contact Algin Management today to find world-class options right in the heart of one of Manhattan’s favorite neighborhoods.
