HotelTonight – Murray Hill Manhattan Hotels
New York is a city that is home to millions of people, but what's interesting about it is how the people tend to gather in certain parts of town. Historically, immigrants from the same country would tend to settle in the same neighborhood, and that made sense as it allowed newcomers to enjoy a sense of familiarity. That's all been changing over the past couple of generations. You won't find many neighborhoods that are dominated by one culture or country of origin from the past anymore. Instead, you'll find neighborhoods where the commonalities tend to include age and socioeconomic status, no matter how loosely defined. I've discovered that New York has been changing in this manner for some time, as I like to take whatever time I can get there and explore a neighborhood for 24 hours. It gives me the opportunity to get to know a place on a deeper level. On my last trip to New York, I spent my 24 hours exploring the Murray Hill neighborhood. I wasn't concerned about finding a place to stay. I travel with my HotelTonight app. It would find me a Murray Hill Manhattan hotel room as soon as I needed one.
It doesn't take long for one to realize that Murray Hill is a home for a large number of young professionals. I saw it immediately when I started walking around in the morning. There were young people everywhere, dressed nicely, hustling to the subway or into cabs, making their way to work. It left the area a bit quiet during the day, but that didn't bother me as it gave me a chance to have a coffee at a cafe and talk to a few locals. They had just moved to town and were looking for jobs.
Given its demographics, Murray Hill doesn't feel like many other parts of New York. You don't get that sense of hustle and bustle here, except for those morning hours. What you do get is more of a laid-back, take it easy type of approach to life. That's played out in a tangible sense by way of all of the different pubs you see along the main streets in the community. A lot of the pubs are sports bars, which makes perfect sense for people who want to relax after a hard day of work.
In furtherance of the theme that defines Murray Hill to a large extent, you won't find a lot of high-end restaurants here, but you will find quite a few that serve good food at reasonable prices. I decided to try some pub food myself, and it was a very nice meal. I enjoyed a couple of local brews with a delicious hamburger, all while talking to some nice people who were casually watching a baseball game on the big screen. The food was good, the conversation was interesting and the experience was worthwhile.
