Midtown East – including Murray Hill
Midtown East Located east of Fifth Avenue, New York’s luxury shopping district, it is the largest commercial district in the United States and is a skyscraper office district where many corporate headquarters buildings line up. Many Japanese companies gather here, making it a convenient and livable area for Japanese people. Because of the United Nations, it is always popular because there are many people who commute to the ambassadors’ residences and consulates of various countries, and executives who commute to the office district on foot. Japanese representative offices are concentrated around Grand Central Station, so there are Japanese restaurants, izakayas, piano bars, Japanese hair salons, Japanese video stores, Japanese doctors, Japanese bakeries, Japanese supermarkets ( Sunrise Mart, Katagiri, Dainobu), etc., making it the area with the largest number of Japanese expatriates. Murray Hill has a hospital of New York University (commonly known as NYU), so there are many doctors and hospital staff. The number of families with children is increasing because public order is good and the quality of elementary schools is good. There are few rental apartments, but many high-rise condominiums with doormen are popular. The Japanese school Lise Kennedy and our office are also located near Grand Central Station.
