Murray Hill

Murray Hill

34th Street to 40th Street, Madison Avenue to the East River

Murray Hill derives its name from the Murray family. In the 18th century, Robert Murray, a successful merchant, and his wife Mary arrived in New York City and built their mansion on top of a hill overlooking the East River and Kips Bay; a section of the city that is now Park Avenue and 36th Street. The house was named Inclenberg, but was often called Murray Hill. Mary Murray played an important part in the Revolutionary War. After the British landed in Kips Bay on September 15, 1776, Mrs. Murray invited the commanding officers up to her mansion for tea. This detained the British troops long enough for American general Israel Putnam and his troops to escape the city and join George Washington’s forces. Because of her invitation to tea, Mary Murray prevented the capture of 3,500 American rebels, thus keeping the hope of America alive.

For much of the 20th century Murray Hill, with its beautiful brownstone row houses, was a quiet formal place with many wealthy older residents. Today, partly due to its proximity to Midtown and Grand Central Station, the neighborhood is a predominately young area, home to 20 and 30 year old professionals who are drawn to the affordable rents and down-to-earth, casual yet vibrant vibe.

Within Murray Hill you can find “Curry Hill”, an area in the East 20s, which has a multitude of small Indian restaurants and “Koreatown” in the 30s which is known for its authentic Korean cuisine and karaoke lounges. Morgan Library & Museum and the modernist Scandinavia House are also within its borders.
