Manhattan Neighborhood | Clinton - Hell's Kitchen

Clinton - Hells Kitchen - Midtown West
View From 41st floor of The Link 52nd Street and 8th Avenue
Some still argue about the exact boundaries of Hell's Kitchen, but it's commonly considered to run from 34th to 59th Streets and from Eighth Avenue to the Hudson River. The area is also known as Clinton and long-time residents use the two terms interchangeably. East of Eighth Avenue including Carnegie Hall and Time Square is considered midtown west.

Hells Kitchen has always been a neighborhood, made up of blue-collar families in walk up railroad flats and theatre people who wanted to live close to where they work. For 15 years the neighborhood has been changing. It has become renovated, gentrified. New condo construction along with many new restaurants and bars have opened in the neighborhood.

The new generation of Hell's Kitchen, are folks who started looking on the Upper West Side and Chelsea then realized they could enjoy much the same lifestyle in midtown west. For the past century, the typical apartment was a walkup tenement now it's a luxury rental or condo with post modern finishes: grand lobbies, lots of granite, lots of glass, high-speed Internet access and health club and other amenities.
