"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.
