Murray Hill is a diverse neighborhood, known for its residential vibe and nightlife along Third Avenue, as well as numerous diplomatic embassies and missions (the U.N. is at East 42nd). Located from East 34th Street to East 42nd Street and between Madison Avenue and the East River, there are not many office spaces available here.
The majority of the buildings are quite old and some of the brownstone townhouses date back to 1892.
The office buildings in this area include the buildings on the south side of Grand Central Terminal, the News Building, the Young & Rubicam Building, the Chanin Building, Hiro Plaza and the Emporis Building, just to name a few.
Rents range from $35/sf to $82/sf for Class A buildings, $32/sf to $55/sf for Class B buildings and $36/sf to $48/sf for Class C buildings.
Your transit choices for Murray Hill include the 4, 5, 6, S and 7 trains.
Working in Murray Hill is potentially less stressful as the overall feel is subdued and more residential.
