    Murray Hill

    Murray Hill is an under-the-radar, down-to-earth district in Midtown that over the last couple decades has become the go-to neighborhood for post-grads seeking affordable rent and convenient access to transportation around Manhattan. The side streets are lined with rows of brownstones and landmark buildings, while newer residential buildings have risen between First and Third Avenue.

    With the surplus of salons, fitness studios, and spas that thrive off the young population, Murray Hill could be an ideal location for any company looking to attract young employees or customers. Startups and small companies seeking Midtown East office space will find the lower prices of Murray Hill very attractive.
