Hell's Kitchen Commerce & Culture
Perhaps not as the longshoremen of yore intended, today’s Hell's Kitchen is a hotbed for your general nightlife endeavors. Ninth Avenue is the main commercial strip, teeming with bars, clubs, and lounges. Meanwhile, its food scene provides a mix of cuisines from all over the world. Restaurant Row links Hell's Kitchen to the nearby Theater District and lives up to the promise of its name. It’s a street — 46th between Eight and Ninth avenues — lined with restaurants, some of which have served neighborhood folks, working folks, and theatergoing folks for over a century. Green space is a little hard to come by in the neighborhood, but DeWitt Clinton Park can be found in the northwest, and there is an entrance to the High Line on 34th Street near the Javits Center. There is also plenty to do and see along the Hudson River, right in the spot where Hell’s Kitchen first grew.
