View of Murray Hill and the Empire State Building frm Manhattan Place condos View of Murray Hill and the Empire State Building frm Manhattan Place condos
The biggest draw to Murray Hill continues to lie in its central location near Midtown offices and its close proximity to transportation, namely Grand Central Terminal, the Lexington subway line, and more recently NYC Ferry at 34th Street. Characterized by well-trafficked avenues and often tranquil sidestreets, neighborhood fixtures include The Morgan Library & Museum, Scandanavia House, and Tudor City at its extreme northeast corner.
Listing prices of the 264 condos currently for sale in Murray Hill ask a median of $1,558,000 or $1,511 per square foot. The average price per square foot of condos closed in 2019 is $1,327, down seven percent year-over-year and well below the Manhattan average of $1,860.
In recent years the neighborhood has seen a surge of high-end development with towers reaching for the opportunity to capture dazzling river and skyline views. Like much of Manhattan's new residential product, the new buildings and upgrades to existing one bestow residents plenty of amenities and luxury finishes. It isn't easy to choose favorites, but we've compiled a list of the top ten condominiums in the neighborhood. All of the following are somewhat architecturally inspired, have thoughtful layouts, and provide abundant amenities.
