Around Murray Hill

The entire neighborhood of Murray Hill is residential except for Northern Boulevard. This main thoroughfare is where residents find retail shops and restaurants. Most of the public transit options run along the southern section of the neighborhood, parallel to Northern Boulevard. Residents commuting into Manhattan tend to live close to this part of the neighborhood. As you go farther away from the train stops in Murray Hill, the blocks start to feel more like the suburbs.

You’ll find no shortage of restaurants along Northern Boulevard. However, this is the only stretch of the neighborhood that contains eateries except for the very rare exception. The true highlights of Murray Hill are the multiple Korean BBQ restaurants found within its borders. At these restaurants, you can have authentic Korean dishes with all of the banchan (side dishes such as kimchi and pickled radishes) you could hope for. The neighborhood also has a variety of restaurants specializing in international cuisine.

Walking along the quiet neighborhood streets of Murray Hill, you will see residents working in their gardens or on their landscaping. Kids play along the sidewalks while their parents watch from the house or socialize with neighbors. As you walk down Northern Boulevard, the smell of Korean BBQ wafts through the air and the sound of lively conversations from restaurants can be heard. Head up to Bowne Park and sit under a weeping willow tree to watch the migrating geese stop for a bite of grass before setting off on their long migration out of the city.

Walk around the block and catch up with neighbors before heading down to Northern Boulevard to your favorite Korean BBQ spot or other restaurant with family and friends. Finish the night at one of the several cocktail bars or pubs in the neighborhood.

Wake up and grab a fresh cup of coffee and a pastry from your local cafe. Walk or bike ride to Bowne Park and stroll along the pond while enjoying nature views. Then meet up with friends for a picnic in the park and some fun outdoor games.

Northern Boulevard gives residents with cars a direct route to I-678 and I-295, which provides easy access to Laguardia and JFK Airports. Murray Hill doesn’t have any subway lines that run through it; however, there are two Long Island Rail Road stops in the neighborhood. The Murray Hill and Broadway stops are both on the Port Washington line and can take commuters into the heart of Manhattan or to Long Island. The QM3, Q13, Q16, and Q28 bus lines run east to west through the neighborhood and the Q15 and Q76 run north to south.
