Around the Block

Named for the notorious 19th century motorcycle gang, “Hell’s Kitchen” was once a part of town where few New Yorkers thought to live. Its gritty reputation and far-west location kept it under the radar. But today’s Hell’s Kitchen is a far cry from the image its name evokes. In the past ten years, developers and small business owners have planted roots in this up-and-coming neighborhood.

In Hell’s Kitchen what you see is what you get—and that’s great dining, affordable apartments, and a low-key vibe. Even as luxury high-rises dot the complexion of this classic neighborhood, Hell’s Kitchen maintains its no-frills attitude with ease.
