Neighborhood just below Murray Hill in the lower 30s on the east side of Manhattan. Murray Hill is well known as a reference, Kips Bay was home to Irish Catholic families and businesses in the 50s and 60s and earlier, being gentrified into newer high rise condo buildings through the 70s to today. Below 30 th street on the East side in the 20s was mostly Italians, above 30th was Irish. There was once an el train running down 2nd avenue through the neighborhood.
People in Kips Bay would fall asleep to the sound of an el train each night.
