Hell's Kitchen Apartments

Hell’s Kitchen, located on the West Side between Chelsea and Midtown West, has moved beyond it's crime ridden past to become one of the most popular neighborhoods in Manhattan.

Multiple luxury buildings are popping up as far west as 11th avenue, featuring doormen, state of the art gyms, parking, dishwashers, and in unit laundry. Though they can be a hike from the subway, many of these buildings offer shuttles that run to and fro.

Hell’s Kitchen is the perfect place to live for the theatre lover, as the lights of Broadway are only a few blocks away. Indeed, many actors live and practice their craft in Hell’s Kitchen to be close to the main theatre district of New York. A lot of the restaurants in Hell’s Kitchen also offer prix-fixed pre-theater dinners, and they will make sure you get to the show on time.

Hell’s Kitchen has also become an experimental restaurant mecca, featuring everything from a Mexican restaurant where you can dine on crickets to DohYo, a Latin American Japanese fusion restaurant where hydraulic powered communal tables disappear on a whim to make room for performance space, to Dans le Noir, where you indulge in the ultimate gastronomic experience by dining in pitch black--and your servers? They’re blind.

Hell’s Kitchen also has a flea market every weekend on 39th and 8th, where vendors sell everything from handmade crafts to historical jewelry and items found at estate sales.

More about Hell's Kitchen

The gay community thrives in Hell’s Kitchen and Chelsea, and many gay watering holes dot the chaotic streets.

The area also is a center for innovation, as the Jacob Javits Center, which hosts everything from tech trade shows to car shows to gift fairs, brings in a constant crowd from around the world to check out and purchase the newest things.

Not the quietest of places to live, it’s certainly lively, and plans to extend the 7 train all the way west will surely propagate further development and residential buildings.

Historically an Irish Catholic area, a vicious Irish American gang, the Westies, once had their home base here. The proximity to Port Authority and Penn Station has also historically been an issue, however increased security and a lowering in crime has trended the area towards revitalization.

There are several theories regarding where the name, Hell’s Kitchen, came from. Unfortunately, if you're looking for a definitive answer, there is none. The only common thread to these theories is that the origin behind the name is not very flattering.
