Known as a previously run down area of new York it has developed in to an area rich in hotels and restaurants. When walking around here i felt pretty safe, even at night when going between our hotel and nearby shops.

It feels very much like a place where the real new York where people live meets the new York people visit it for.

After a while, the busy streets of Manhattan can drive you crazy. Walk into Hell's kitchen and the buildings look different, the pace is slower, people of all walks of life, many people walking their dogs and some small parks of kids.

It's interesting the you can just walk a couple of blocks away from times square and find this slow paced area.

In our exploration of New York, we proceeded further to the west, toward the Hudson River.
When I think about the Hudson River, it always reminds me of the famous movie with Marlon Brando, that is, "On the waterfront". Why do I say this? Because this part of New York counted for the working-class region of such megalopolises, dominantly Irish Americans, who had come here in XIX century. Between 34th street in the south and 59th street in the north, Eighth Ave. in the east and the Hudson River to the west, it represents now, transportation, hospital and warehouse infrastructure support to the Midtown Manhattan business. Sometime, it was very dangerous region, a many gangs have had on these streets hard clashes and the prices of the real estate and simply for rent were much lower than in other areas of Manhattan. Now is completely different situation with neighborhood of affluent young professionals who strive to bring some alternations in this region ,beside the residents from the old days of Hell's Kitchen.
Very historically interesting, let's say district of New York, with as well plenty of the cozy restaurants, stores for shopping and above al, the characteristic way of house building.
Just amazing !

Hell's kitchen was an area of New York City where no-one went. It was scary, dangerous, drug ridden. Just the worst. The price of real-estate has changed all that. Just seeing the changes are just amazing.
