Works[edit]

Perhaps Murphy's most admired achievement is the Jamaica, Queens campus of St. John’s University where he created the master plan for the campus and designed the first four buildings. Although he never had an opportunity to build a church in Manhattan, his Brooklyn churches were greatly admired, which resulted in opportunities to work with Roman Catholic communities throughout the area.
