"Not my favorite part of Queens; Better to visit than to live."

Murray Hill is a small area of Queens, between Flushing and Auburndale / Bayside. It is a commuter's haven, with tons of apartments for rent within walking distance of the Murray Hill Long Island Railroad station. For those who don't want to spend the extra money on the LIRR, they can walk about 10 minutes to the subway station in Flushing. There are also many bus routes that pass through this area, but for the most part, everything is in walking distance.

The biggest issues in this area are safety and parking. While many of the gangs that others have written about are things of the past, safety remains a large concern for residents. There are a lot of bars in the area, so car accidents (particularly those caused by drunken drivers) happen relatively often. Seeing strange men urinate in the street is also a common sight.

The area immediately surrounding the train station is predominately filled with Korean restaurants. For those who favor Korean barbecue or seafood like myself, there are plenty of options. Most of the restaurants have valet parking as well. However, as I said earlier, most people prefer to visit Murray Hill, rather than live there. My husband and I visit there frequently for the food, but we've never considered living there.
Pros
  • Walking distance of almost everything
  • Great food
  • Lots of transportation options
Cons
  • Unsafe
  • No parking
  • Too busy at times
