About Hell's Kitchen Neighborhood

Neighborhood Map image

Hell’s Kitchen is in close proximity to the theater district, Port Authority and Times Square, but far enough away to maintain a somewhat under-the-radar low-key vibe and affordable apartments. The neighborhood is situated along the Hudson, above Chelsea, but below the Upper West Side and kitty-corner from Central Park. Residents enjoy riverside views, a variety of parks and basketball courts and refreshingly untrendy, accessible nightlife. The neighborhood has a steady buzz, and is gaining a reputation for its vast array of cuisines from many different cultures. It also boasts a unique history, as former stomping ground of the infamous Hell’s Angels, and a stronghold of the LGBTQ community.
