On the Sunday afternoon in June upon arriving in NYC, we strolled up and down the main streets of Hell's Kitchen. I loved the vibes here - all the quaint shops and restaurants. We stopped at a local Mexican restaurant and had the best guacamole, salsa, chips, and drinks.

I stepped out of my hotel at the 44th St. and just started walking. After a while stumbled upon an area which turned out to be the Hell's kitchen. Distinct European feel, a small park, flea market, fabulous restaurants...the place seems to have it all. I was told by the hotel staff later that Hell's kitchen was a dangerous area... More

We recently visited Times Square and we ate dinner every night in Hell's Kitchen. There was no way I was going to NYC to eat at TGI Friday's or Olive Garden, I wanted to eat like a local. Walk a few blocks from Times Square to 9th Avenue and there are more delicious restaurants to choose from than I can... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
