  what's this neighborhood like?

Hell's Kitchen is an iconic neighborhood in west Midtown Manhattan known for its gritty history as a slum for poor Irish immigrants. Some developers and real estate agents have attempted to rebrand this area as "Clinton" to perhaps suggest a more idyllic place, but the name certainly doesn't keep people away: this is a popular neighborhood full of affluent young professionals.

Five-story brick walk-ups are the standard form of housing in Hell's Kitchen although there are plenty of newer residential towers in the neighborhood, particularly on the main avenues, and development on more continues. As it's gentrified over the past couple decades home prices have increased steadily.

Ninth Avenue and Tenth Avenue, which run the entire length of the neighborhood, are where most retail, dining, and nightlife is located. There are nearly 100 restaurants offering almost every type of cuisine, dozens of bars and pubs, and lots of boutiques. Eleventh Avenue still tends to be fairly industrial. And along the Hudson River you'll find New York's convention center, which takes up several blocks, and the Intrepid Sea Air & Space Museum, a tourist favorite featuring a decommissioned aircraft carrier, submarine, space shuttle, and jets.

The DeWitt Clinton Park covers two full blocks and includes a dog run, sports fields, and gardens. Hell's Kitchen park offers basketball and handball courts and a playground. Along the Hudson the Greenway offers a path to walk or bike all the way down to the southern or northern tips of Manhattan.

Hell's Kitchen is bordered on the north by the Upper West Side, on the east by Midtown and the Garment District, on the south by Chelsea, and on the west by the Hudson River.
