"Work and play on Murray Street"

Given Murray Street's proximity to the Financial District, it seems reasonable to assume that the amenities of this street lie in work, not play. Certainly, the street is conveniently located for would-be financiers, and the restaurant scene, though copious, tends to be focused on places for business lunch, not brunch with the kids. That said, Murray Street's fantastic location makes it an ideal, if unorthodox, choice for families. Not only is the street located right near Stuyvesant High School, one of the city's most prestigious exam-entry public schools, but it's also in close proximity to a number of parks, including the scenic revamped West Side Highway, which offers fitness buffs one of the city's longest and most stress-free bike paths, heading up to 79th Street along the river. The street itself is host to a respectable variety of cuisines, including the Indian Express, Delizia Uno, Muscle Maker Grill, 17 Murray Street Restaurant, and a number of office-friendly take-aways and delis with delivery service, although you might want to head further north into the West Village for more inventive dining. If you're looking for amenity-rich real estate, however, the high-profile 50 Murray Street is offering luxury apartments for rent at astronomic prices - perhaps a sign that this neighborhood is taking on a more residential tone.

"Where the youth hang out."

Another New York music stop off that is possibly off the radar for a lot of people is Murray Street. Not only does it have a great number of venues including The Blarney Star, a home from home for Irish people and Irish sympathisers, the street also has a Sonic Youth album named after it. The band had their recording studio here at the time of making the album so if you must wring every inch of musical blood from the beating heart of New York, add Murray Street to your list.

"On Murray Street"

Murray Street is filled with various small businesses and shops. I really enjoy this area of Brooklyn near the East River. It was very easily accessible with various metros available and was very walkable and convenient. The entire neighborhood would lend itself perfectly to a family or young couple. I really like this area and think it should be considered on a move to downtown.
