Formerly home to the City’s affluent during the late 1800s and early 1900s, Murray Hill offers plenty to attract those interested in NYC’s dining and nightlife scenes. The neighborhood is also a boon for culture lovers. On these streets, lined with prewar townhouses and Beaux-Arts mansions, you can find the Morgan Library & Museum, gifting the City with an enormous collection of rare books; and the sleek, modernist Scandinavia House, which holds an art gallery and frequent concerts and lectures.
