"Blurry Hill"

As a recent satirical youtube video made clear, Murray Hill has been taking on a new name for itself in recent years. An extended college dormitory (in which everybody seems to know, or at least be Facebook friends with, everyone else) for wealthy (independently or no) twenty-somethings who prefer i-banking to Williamsburg organic farming, Murray Hill has been somewhat taken to task for its dive bar culture, rowdy apartment blocks, and the number of post-beer-bong blackouts taking place on these city streets. For those just getting out of college looking to party with like-minded graduates, Murray Hill can be a dream: its close, even cloistered, culture requires little adjustment from the all-night-parties and hook-up-gossip of college. For everyone else, however - including artsier types - Murray Hill can quickly devolve into a nightmare of drunken antics in the corridor, vomit on the doorstep, and an evening drink at pubs like The Hill and Rodeo taken over by large groups downing shots. If you want the party to continue forever, head on down! Otherwise, think twice - or invest in ear plugs!
  • Fun atmosphere
