Introducing the 1 and only true garden apartment in Murray Hill!
Step back into the 1880's, when New York City was bustling with newly invented electric cable cars, gas-lite streets, and horse-drawn carriages rumbling on cobble-stone roads. This area of the city was called Murray Hill, a place where New York's elite were constructing grand limestone and brick Townhouses, and Victorian-era Mansions.
This pristine neighborhood welcomed residents and visitors with lush tree-lined streets and spectacular period architecture. Now some 137 years later, we invite you to visit 23 East 37th Street, Garden 1FR in Murray Hill. This former circa: 1860's private Mansion turned residential Co-op boasts some impressive neighbors such as the Morgan Museum and Library, (formerly owned by Pierpont Morgan) anchoring Madison Avenue to the West, and the University Club on Park Avenue to the East.
