In a formerly low-rise area just west of the Theater District lies Clinton, one of Manhattan’s newest hot spots. Here, you may enjoy everything from sprawling renovated lofts to the Orion Condominium, a luxury high-rise tower which boasts some of the best views in the city (and free breakfast for residents). The Clinton area is also home to charming row houses, some of which are quiet historical walkups that might house Broadway’s “next big thing.” Clinton co-op and condo dwellers find that rents are affordable and the transportation is great, with access to Penn Station, the Port Authority, and the Times Square subways.
The West Thirties are home to some of Manhattan’s newer luxury rental buildings, such as Hudson Crossing and Emerald Green, while the West Forties offer river view apartments including Silver Towers, whose 1,300 units and public park practically make a high-rise apartment city within Clinton itself. Although these luxury apartments often offer health clubs, pools, and patios, one of the main draws for Clinton apartment dwellers is the riverfront, which presents opportunities for bicycling, jogging and kayaking. Another attraction is Ninth Avenue, a Midtown West restaurant row that draws both pre- and post-theater crowds to its trattorias, cafes, grills, and steakhouses.
What's in a name?
If Chelsea and the East Village had a baby, it would look a lot like Clinton, aka Hell's Kitchen. Whatever you call it, it's a wonderfully exciting place to live.
