"Offers just about all you could ask for"

- SmartSugar
Lexington in the Central Park area is a lot of what you’d expect – expensive apartments, shopping, and hotels. There is also the obscure and unexpected hostel for international student visitors on th...

"Nice Place to Settle "

- andiefrancese
East 27th Street is a nice place to settle into the city. It's close to everything and is only a block away from Madison Square Park. Because of it's location real estate is hard to come by but worth...

"Long, wear good shoes."

- lita
I like most people had heard of Madison Avenue, but for some odd reason in the many times I visited the City I was never inclined to visit it. This was until a friend of mine decided he wanted to eat...

"Actually pretty which is surprising for this area"

- JenMac
East 37th starts off pretty depressing, but, unlike a lot of the streets in the neighborhood, it actually turns around. There are a couple of luxury high rises right on the East river that I'm sure a...

"Ritzy Shops Near Park Ave."

- Foxxxy
East 40th street in eastern Manhattan is only a few blocks from the busy FDR Drive, but it's also only a few blocks away from Park Avenue in the other direction. I love this area because it's full of...

"Lively, but a bit dark"

- Anemone10
Park ave south is the section of Park ave that stretches towards Union Square. Although The Square itself is usually quite lively, Park ave itself is quite dark. Not many stores there stay open at ni...

"Some gorgeous homes"

- JenMac
East 38th starts off at the East River with an old Con Ed plant and an animal shelter. It's not exactly the most welcoming start to the street, but the Con Ed building is actually really cool looking...

"Big Buildings and little else"

- JenMac
39th starts off on the East River with an old Con Edison Plant that they're in the works to demolish and replace with high rise condos and commercial spaces. I'm not sure how I feel about this. For...

"The Opposite of Lacking"

- Macsizzle
In the wealth of things to do in this neighborhood, you will not feel like anything is lacking on this block. For shoe shopping try Lord John's Bootery or Annte shoes for a more vintage selection. For...

"The Copper Chimney"

- Macsizzle
If you like Indian cuisine, you should try some food from The Cooper Chimney. This block was fun but simple, residential, and seemed like more 30-somethings were present the younger crowd on other blo...

Ranked 11th best street in Murray Hill

"The low end Park Avenue"

- JenMac
Park Avenue South turns into Park Avenue proper at 32nd street and there is definitely a distinct turn in architecture on this block if not necessarily as swift a turn in energy. There are some great...

"Near the Hustle and Bustle "

- sansavy
36th street is not as crazy and crowded as 34th street. On 1st avenue there is a nice small park. You are also in walking distance of the Empire State Building which is located on 34th street between...

"Queens Midtown Expressway entrance"

- JenMac
There's no a whole lot to say about the Tunnel Entrance street other than it's exactly what it sounds like. It is right off of 1st Avenue around 36th and it's the street you take to get onto the Quee...

"Queens Midtown Expressway Exit"

- JenMac
The name is exactly as it sounds: it's the exit or off ramp street from the Queens Midtown Expressway . . . basically, it's the exit from a freeway. You can't live on this street, and it's pretty de...

"Nothing to do or see. Seriously."

- JenMac
2nd Ave in Murray Hill starts off with an ok looking Cathedral and equally as boring luxury high rises. I mean, Murray Hill, you've really outdone yourself when even your Cathedrals are architectural...

3 Ave

"One of the best streets in the neighborhood"

- JenMac
Of all the Avenues in Murray Hill, 3rd is by far and away the most jamming. It's like all of the life of the neighborhood went onto 3rd, leaving 1st and 2nd to just be sad and boring. 3rd is basical...

"Getting into the glamour"

- JenMac
5th Avenue starts off in Murray Hill much like you would imagine any part of 5th to be: opulent. There's a gorgeous building right on the corner on 32nd that used to be a luxury department store but...

24th starts off in Murray Hill with some great old buildings with less than great happenings. CUNY's Baruch College is right between 3rd and Lex and takes up the entire north side of the street with...

"A lot of business but not bad"

25th picks up in Murray Hill about the same as it left off in Kip's Bay. There's a cool building right at the corner of Lex that is used for AIDS treatment and another cool building on the other corn...
