2017 A Great Year for the Murray Hill Malls on Park Avenue!

2017 A Great Year for the Murray Hill Malls on Park Avenue!

In 2017, we experimented with new plantings and are ready to go into 2018 with a more sustainable landscape plan. On the perimeter of each bed, new decorative grasses have been planted that will hold water so that less watering will be necessary. These grasses are perennial and will return each year. At the back of each of the beds, perennial Stella d’Oro and Stella Rubia Lilies have been planted. These lilies are bulbous and store water in their bulbs so that less water is needed to maintain them. In the center of each bed, our seasonal annuals - spring tulips, summer begonias and seasonal chrysanthemums - will be installed. 

The generosity of all who supported us in 2017 is amazing and appreciated. Next year, we hope to have even more people and organizations participating with us.

P & D Committee Participates in The Cultural Medallion Program

P & D Committee Participates in The Cultural Medallion Program

The Murray Hill Neighborhood Association’s Preservation & Design Committee is excited to be working with the Historic Landmarks Preservation Center to participate in The Cultural Medallion program, which installs descriptive plaques on buildings to honor and recognize distinguished New Yorkers in the arts, science, politics, business, education and sports, who once lived in those buildings.

Although there are close to 100 medallions located throughout New York City, there is currently only one cultural medallion in Murray Hill at 157 East 35th Street, honoring the sculptor Malvina Hoffman. Due to the number of illustrious residents who once lived in Murray Hill, the P & D Committee is exploring several names to add to that list, including Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt, the illustrator Charles Dana Gibson (creator of the Gibson Girls), the actors Jessica Tandy and her husband Hume Cronyn, two-term mayor William Grace, architects Marcel Breuer and William Delano, as well as William F. Buckley, founder of the National Review. These influential people all lived or worked in the area from East 35th Street to East 38th Street, Madison to Third Avenues.
