Neighborhood Guide: Murray Hill

MURRAY HILL: The Murray Hill neighborhood is located in Midtown East Manhattan, and the boundaries are defined as East 34th Street to the south, East 40th Street to the north, Madison Avenue to the west, and the East River to the east. Murray Hill derives its name from the Murray family, 18th-century Quaker merchants, who worked in the shipping and overseas trade industries.
