Murray Hill

Murray Hill is situated 34th St. to 40th St., and East River to Madison Ave. It acquires its name from the Murray family, 18th-century salesmen. About 1762 Robert Murray rented land from the city for a great house and farm. His great house, which he named Inclenberg, was regularly termed Murray Hill. Since the 1990s, people in their twenties have relocated to the neighborhood from the suburbs of New York. Today, from those 100 residences listed in the Social Register of 1892, over 60 still stand intact. Two of New York City's most iconic architectural landmarks stand at the corner of Murray Hill: Grand Central Terminal and the Chrysler Building. The Morgan Library & Museum presents diverse cultural activities and is home to an amazing collection of rare books. Additionally, the area is home to various Indian, Korean, and Sichuan restaurants.
