Neighborhood is great, very safe. There is a 24 hour Duane Reade right on the corner, a yoga studio next door, dry cleaner next door and Gristedes one block away. Lots of restaurants just a few blocks down. A movie theatre in Kips bay. Indian grocery stores and restaurants on Lexington ave and 28th street. Trader Joes around there somewhere too. The closest train station is grand central which can get quite crowded and is a 10-12 minute walk away from the building.

I love my neighborhood, it is very quiet. If you head a little east it is a lot busier so I try to avoid that.

On the fringe of Murray Hill. Not really in the heart of it where most recent college grads are.

Walking distance to 2 grocery stores (Trader Joes and Fairway), across the street from a gym, walking distance to dozens of restaurants and bars. Close to Grand Central. Unbeatable location for convenience.

Neighborhood is very safe and quiet. You can go for a run by the river. There is a 24 hour pharmacy just at the corner. However, it’s about a 12 minute walk to the nearest train station which is grand central.

New York Tower
Pros - Fairway at 30th/2nd ave, which is wonderful. Route E shuttle goes to 30th/1st ave, so it's easy to get to and from campus on weekdays. Very quiet area, but with lots of restaurants and a fair amount of nightlife. So close to Penn Station, which makes it easy to get to the airport and to leave the city.

Cons - It can feel far from the heart of campus, and I'm constantly taking cabs and public transit back and forth; combined with high rent, this can get expensive.

Very close to Grand Central Terminal, convenience can't be beat. But area is not residential at all, unsurprisingly.
