"Nothing to do or see. Seriously."

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 architecturally boring. There's a sad, little one block park across 36th that highlights the pass through kind of vibe that the neighborhood has, but it's some of the only green in Murray Hill, so if you live here, you'll probably know this park well.
At 38th, you'll find one of the few neighborhood bars in this neighborhood. It's a pretty good bar for Murray Hill but I wouldn't go out of my way to get there by any stretch of the imagination. There used to be another bar across 2nd but that's now a pet store. I even have pets and I think I would prefer that space to have stayed a bar. This area needs a little dazzle to it and I would suffer walking a few more blocks for kibble in order to attain that.
2nd stays just as boring as it started all the way through until 42nd where you have the Daily News building. I still don't find this building remarkable but some people do: it's used as the Daily Planet building in Superman.
Murray Hill has got to be one of the most lackluster neighborhoods in Manhattan and 2nd Ave doesn't do anything to help that out. There's nothing to do or see and there's no neighborhood vibe. But, you get a little more space for your dollar (not enough in my opinion). I don't get it, but enough people live here so maybe I'm missing something.
