Walkscore Info

If you know anything about Manhattan, other than its reputation as one of the most dynamic and popular boroughs in NYC, you probably know how walkable it is here. And Murray Hill is definitely no exception. Ranking amongst the best walkable neighborhoods in the Big Apple, Murray Hill makes it super easy to perform your errands, take a stroll, or enjoy an evening at one of the area’s many amazing bars and restaurants. In fact, you’ll be able to pass more than 60 establishments within a five-minute walk. Public transit might actually be even better, offering approximately 30 convenient bus lines. As for bikeability, at 80/100 it’s not as highly rated as walkability or rideability, but it’s still quite high!

Types Of Buildings

Home to St. Vartan Armenian Cathedral, the Madison Belmont Building, The Morgan Library & Museum, and much more, Murray Hill offers everything from gorgeous brownstones with tree-lined streets and renowned cultural institutions to towering high-rises filled with modern condos. However, what attracts a lot of newcomers is the large inventory of smaller, more affordable apartments. You can also find Stern College for Women of Yeshiva University, which helps to bolster the neighborhood’s college-town vibe. Originally known for its quintessential New York City charm, the enclave has since become younger and more active, home to an assortment of bars, restaurants, and other nightlife establishments.
