Murray Hill stretches roughly from 30th to 40th Street between 5th Avenue and the East River, and is a mix of high-rises, restaurants, and bars filled mostly with an affluent, postcollege crowd. The small but solid enclave of Little India (also known as "Curry Hill"), primarily around Lexington and 28th Street, is a good area for sampling authentic cuisine and shopping for traditional clothing and other goods in a handful of boutiques. Farther north, a few side streets are lined with shady trees and town houses, with some high-profile haunts, including the Morgan Library and Museum with its striking architecture and rare manuscripts. But no matter why you're here or where you're headed, New York's biggest icon, the Empire State Building, is always inviting your skyward gaze.
