About Murray Hill

Murray Hill is a unique residential neighborhood in midtown Manhattan. While there is no formal boundary for the neighborhood, the area served by The Murray Hill Neighborhood Association and its sister organization the Manhattan East Community Association (MECA) extends from Fifth Avenue eastward to the East River and from 42nd Street down to 26th Street (encompassing the 10016 postal code).

The City of New York Landmarks Preservation Commission has designated several blocks between 38th Street and 35th Street as a historic district, and many buildings are designated as individual landmarks. A large portion of Murray Hill has also been recognized by the The National Register of Historic Places. Due to the proximity of the United Nations headquarters, many countries operate Permanent Missions to the U.N. in Murray Hill.

In the neighborhood you will find world-class cultural, educational, and medical facilities. In addition, Murray Hill boasts many fine-dining restaurants as well as lively bars, unique shops, quality grocery stores and services, and major transportation hubs such as Grand Central Terminal.
