Location: Located on the west side of Manhattan, between 40th and 59th streets, west of 8th avenue.

Character: Hell’s Kitchen (also known as Clinton) is a busy mesh of tourists, theaters, restaurants... and locals. The area’s nickname, which dates to the 1880s, is believed to be referring to the terrible riots that took place in the area's overcrowded tenements, back when factories dominated the west side. Hell’s Kitchen’s reputation began to improve (or, seen in a less favorable light, the area began to gentrify) simultaneously with the efforts to improve (Disneyfy?) Time Square.

The area tends to be busy at all hours. Aside from the bustling tourist attractions and Theater Row, Hell’s Kitchen boasts "Restaurant Row" (West 46th St, between 8th and 9th Avenue), where one can find almost any culinary delight imaginable. Ninth Avenue is a busy walk of shops, cafes and galleries. West 51st St, with its brownstones and quaint row homes, is studded with Parisian-style cafes and bars evokes a French flavor.

Demographics: The area is populated with both younger and older business people, professionals, teachers (F.I.T. and Parson’s are nearby), and many actors, who benefit from being close to the Theater District (Central Midtown). Traditionally a blue-collar neighborhood, Hell’s Kitchen has been gentrifying for decades now. The neighborhood has a significant gay community, although not as visible as those in the West Village or Chelsea.

Apartments & Real Estate

High-rise doorman buildings (many of which were constructed since the late 1990s), stone row homes and flats above shops make up most of the area. Not much foliage unless you have a green thumb and a roof deck!
