It's a very certainly located neighborhood, you're close to midtown and downtown respectively. There's a vast variety of dining options as well as bar's, sometimes on the weekends the bar's can be annoying however. It can definitely be a friendly neighborhood with a "small town" feel to some extent, my local dry cleaner, deli, bar, restaurant and pharmacy all know me on a first name basis and generally know what I want without having to ask me. Love the neighborhood!

Murray Hill neighborhood is filled with people from different cultures, businesses, and living complexes. There's always something to do or somewhere to go such as the grocery store, pizza store, newspaper stand, restaurants, clothing boutique, pharmacy, movie theater, and libraries. Murray Hill feels safe because there’s a sense of community, closure, and security. The mixture of locals, commuters, and tourists enhances the diversity in the neighborhood. The neighborhood is often quiet, but once it hits rush hour during the afternoon and at nighttime, that’s when the streets become the busiest. From all 5 boroughs, I’m glad I chose to live in such a welcoming place.
I moved to Murray Hill after living in the East Village, a different neighborhood in downtown New York, for the past four years. Morning to Murray Hill was a little bit of a culture shock. I was very used to artsy vibe of East Village, constantly pulsating and always entertaining - performers in Union Square and Tompkins Square Park, unique stores, vibrant nightlife, etc. It is also a very student-populated area due to the proximity to NYU. Murray Hill is very much a young professional's neighborhood, filled with 20-30 something year olds who moved here after college (such as myself). The neighborhood is filled with less quirky characters and a lot more happy hour specials. Though a tad more serious and toned down than the downtown neighborhoods, there is nevertheless a good selection of restaurants and bars, and not as quiet at night as areas like the Financial District or Upper East Side.
