The name “Hell’s Kitchen” conjures up some pretty unsavory connotations, but the neighborhood moniker is a leftover from many decades past; since the early 1980s, Hell’s Kitchen has undergone substantial improvements, and today it is considered one of the safest and most in-demand areas of the city (image-conscious residents sometimes refer to this area as “Clinton”).

Today, Hell’s Kitchen is defined by upscale new and refurbished residential buildings, though rental rates are still quite competitive for Manhattan. A vibrant collective of restaurants, bars, and art centers cater to the eclectic tastes of the locals. Numerous public parks are spread throughout the community, particularly the large De Witt Clinton Park near the waterfront, and Central Park is very close at hand as well.

Midtown Manhattan’s endless array of attractions is just a couple of blocks away from anywhere in Hell’s Kitchen, and Penn Station is one of several convenient subway stops in and near the neighborhood to get you around the city with ease.

Shopping

While the best of Manhattan's shopping is located over in Midtown East with the palatial department stores along Fifth Avenue, Hell's Kitchen also offers some great choices for shoppers who choose to stick a little closer to home.

Stop at Scent Elate on 48th Street to pick up candles, incense, essential oils, and scents and unique home furnishings to help your apartment feel like an exotic paradise. Ask the owner for help to find just the right gift. B&H, the photo, video, and pro-audio equipment store, wins fans from all over the country for its efficiency, amazing deals, and wide stock. If you're in need of any equipment, stop here for expert advice, knowledgeable employees, and exceptional customer service.

Men who care about how they look should head straight to the Fine and Dandy Shop to pick up the sharpest-looking pocket squares, belts, tie clips, bow ties, sweaters, and scarves to be found. Prices are reasonable, the owners are helpful, and anything you find either makes you look outstanding or serves as a perfect gift.

While many Clinton locals head to Whole Foods on Columbus Circle or the Amish Market on Ninth Avenue, others swear by Ninth Avenue International Foods for spices, Mediterranean specialties, dried fruits, and grains.

Cost

Hell's Kitchen is a somewhat pricey area to live in, with the cost of living running about 18 percent higher than the New York City average. Most residents in Hell's Kitchen are renters, and the average one-bedroom apartment runs about $4,415 per month. New York City's excellent public transportation makes it possible to get anywhere in the city for a low cost of $2.50, or save even more by buying a MetroCard.

Transportation

Hell's Kitchen is a NYC neighborhood; therefore it teems with transportation options. The Port Authority Bus Terminal serves as the end terminal for interstate buses, and seven NYC bus routes run through the neighborhood, heading off in all directions. Three subway stations along Eighth Avenue provide easy access to the A, C and E lines, connecting residents to Washington Heights, Queens, Brooklyn, and the Financial District. In addition, those wishing to leave Manhattan can head for Penn Station just south of Hell's Kitchen or take a cruise leaving from the cruise ship terminal on the Hudson River.

Many residents walk to work or to run errands, and bicycling remains an option for the courageous on the congested city streets. Taxis ply the major thoroughfares, with Uber or car services just a phone call away. The Lincoln Tunnel opens out in Hell's Kitchen, ready to take people to and from New Jersey.

Parks

Right next to the Hudson River, De Witt Clinton Park provides a small oasis of green for the neighborhood, complete with softball diamonds, a football field, basketball courts, volleyball courts and a running track. Local dog owners can bring their dogs here to play in the dog park and splash in the doggie pools, and they can also head to dog runs at Pier 84.

When New Yorkers really want to relax, they head to Central Park, which Hell's Kitchen residents find conveniently located just off the northeast corner of their neighborhood. Take a long walk, head to the zoo, sail your model boats, get a suntan on the Great Lawn, or just sit and people-watch while listening to local street musicians. Whatever you're in the mood for, Central Park definitely has it waiting for you.

Stop by Bryant Park, a pocket park on 43rd Street, every December to take part in its holiday market. Enjoy the free scavenger hunt, snack on tasty treats from the food booths, and pick up some jewelry or home decorating items for all the people on your shopping list. If you don't mind standing in line, you can even enjoy ice skating during the winter here.

Restaurants

Hell's Kitchen teems with restaurants at all price points and levels of sophistication, just waiting for local residents or theatergoers wandering west from Times Square and the Theater District. Choose from wine bars, coffee shops, and all variety of ethnic cuisines, including Italian, Thai, and Creole, or treat yourself to one of the finest dining experiences in the world.

When you're on the run, you can find plenty of food stands or quick-serve places to grab a bite and keep going. The food truck Wafels and Dinges often sets up shop on 52nd Street, vending addictive Belgian waffles topped with speculoos cookie butter as a tasty treat. Stop in at the Jolly Goat Coffee Bar for a perfect cup of coffee with creamy almond milk, and grab a chewy bagel or an ice cream sandwich while you're there. Rex on 10th Avenue dedicates itself to wonderful coffee. Don't leave without trying the verde pulled chicken sandwich or the blueberry muffin.

Make your reservations far in advance for Per Se, chef Thomas Keller's culinary masterpiece and a restaurant considered one of the best in the entire world. Every bite becomes a transcendent experience, through all nine courses of the dinner tasting menu. The menu changes constantly, but you'll probably walk away with a box of all the desserts you couldn't finish. Save up for this once-in-a-lifetime experience, because even the lunch menu costs several hundred dollars.

Deacon Brodie's Tavern welcomes one and all, earning its reputation as the friendliest bar in Manhattan. Head to the Sky Terrace at the Hudson Hotel when you're in the mood for an upscale rooftop lounge where you can drink and relax. The Hammerstein Ballroom is a great concert venue with excellent sound, or head to 37 Arts to catch an off-Broadway show. Don't forget that Broadway itself awaits you just a few blocks to the east, with the best plays and musicals in the world ready to delight you.

History

Although local businesses prefer that people call this neighborhood "Clinton," Hell's Kitchen still sticks. That name was first used in the mid-1800s, when Irish families fleeing the potato famine flocked to the neighborhood, which was a tenement-filled neighborhood run by gangs during Prohibition. In the 1960s, the city established the Special Clinton District to limit building heights and preserve the area's historic nature.

The Museum of Arts and Design and the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum make their home in Hell's Kitchen. Many small off-Broadway theaters cluster along Theatre Row on 42nd Street as well as throughout the neighborhood, and every October, you can let out your inner geek when New York Comic Con comes to town.
