A smart and bright twin-bedroom apartment just three blocks from the Empire State Building and Grand Central Station. This envy-inducing location is a short stroll from many of Manhattan’s famous fixtures but is technically within the borders of the Murray Hill neighbourhood.
This modern apartment benefits from recent renovation and has been completed to a good quality finish. The bright front room with an attractive sash window has a queen bed and a single bed as well as a TV and dining table for four guests.
The practical kitchenette, efficiently designed wastes little space providing a nifty committed preparation area. The modern bathroom has a bathtub with floating shower head and Hollywood lighting.
Fashionable but understated Murray Hill is the perfect base from which to explore this electric island. With historical curiosities like Sniffen Court, Gramercy Park and Morgan Library and Museum and cultural hotspots such as Scandinavia House and Japan Society as well as usual suspects the sparkling Chrysler Building and 5th Avenue, guests here will never be short of eye-opening new experiences
Maybe it’s the breeze from the East River, or the omnipresent peak of the Empire State Building; whatever it is, Murray Hill has a quiet confidence and an irresistibly warm welcome.
Sneak a peak of Sniffen Court, an historically protected mews in the heart of Murray Hill. Originally built as stables in the 1860’s these pretty Romanesque style buildings have served many functions including artists’ studios and the theatre of the Amateur Comedy Club which remains today.
Take in Gramercy Park; one of only two private parks in New York City. Developed in 1831 by one of Manhattan’s first property mogul’s, the park is so private in fact that only the residents of the 60 surrounding lots have keys. From here stroll hidden Irving Place where you’ll find a cacophony of bars and restaurants. We recommend a visit to the local institution Pete’s Tavern. It’s New York’s oldest saloon famously surviving the prohibition era by disguising itself as a flower shop.
