Hell’s Kitchen’s may have a gritty past, but today it’s a place of picturesque walk-ups, a few newer high-rises, and the recognizable backdrop of many films. As the area is just to the west side of Midtown, it’s brimming with artists off the nearby Broadway shows and young professionals. There’s a lively nightlife and fast-paced energy here. There are a lot of mom-and-pop shops and new restaurants to please the foodie community. The neighborhood is also conveniently located next to the Hudson River, and a walk down the West Side Highway at day or night allows for some of the best views New York has to offer.
