Densely built up and very centrally located, Murray Hill is a practical, convenient neighborhood easily reachable by all forms of public transportation (the subway, buses, suburban trains, and even the East River ferry). On the negative side, it does have quite a bit of traffic and congestion, especially near the entrance to the Queens-Midtown tunnel (in the south-east corner of the neighborhood).
Murray Hill has high-rises, brownstones, and walk-up buildings. If you're just moving into the neighborhood, statistically, you're most likely to find an apartment in a high-rise.

Socially, Murray Hill is a fairly homogeneous, upper-middle class neighborhood. Professionals constitute a clear majority, although students (SVA, NYU medical), academics (especially NYU), seniors, and assorted "creative professionals" priced out of Downtown are also well-represented.
The neigborhood's name originates with the owners of an estate that used to be located here. Quakers Robert and Mary Lindley Murray earned their place in history in September 1776 simply by offering the British General Sir William Howe a few glasses of Madeira wine. It was that or, possibly, the company of the couple's charming daughters, Beulah and Susannah, that made him linger. Either way, George Washington's troops led by General Israel Putnam were able to sneak by past Howe from the Battery Point to a new position in Harlem Heights. Before this historical event, the area was known by its Dutch name of "Inclenberg". (Thanks to Tom Holder for the historical note).
