Murray Hill is a station in the Murray Hill neighborhood of the New York City borough of Queens on the Port Washington Branch of the Long Island Rail Road. The station is part of CityTicket. The station is located beneath 150th Street and 41st Avenue, just south of Roosevelt Avenue and is 10.3 miles (16.6 km) from Penn Station in Midtown Manhattan.
Murray Hill Station was originally built c.1889, and torn down in 1912 when the Port Washington branch was depressed below grade in this area between 1912 and 1914. The station house was replaced in 1914 with one built on a bridge built over the tracks. This structure was torn down in 1964, and Murray Hill continues to operate as an unmanned station to this day. Minor renovations took place between 1991 and 1993. A new pedestrian bridge as well as other amenities were added in 2005.
