Neighborhood Profile

Location: The East Side of Manhattan. South of 42nd street, north of 34th street, east of Fifth Avenue. Character: Densely built up and very centrally located, Murray Hill is practical, convenient to most forms of public transportation, but a bit noisy due to the traffic and congestion. Demographics: Professionals constitute a clear majority, but students (SVA, NYU medical), faculty (NYU), seniors and "creative professionals" priced out of Downtown are also well-represented.

Major Streets Crossing the Neighborhood

NAME ORIGIN

Apparently, the name came from the former owners of an estate located here. Quakers Robert and Mary Lindley Murray earned their place in history in September 1776 by simply offering the British General Sir William Howe a few glasses of Madeira wine. It was that or, possibly, the company of their 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". (Rem: Thanks to Tom Holder for the historical note).
