Neighborhood Spotlight: Hell’s Kitchen

June 2022

Hell’s Kitchen is a devilishly wonderful place to rent an apartment. This Midtown Manhattan neighborhood brims over with brilliant dining and drinking destinations and cultural institutions—not to mention top-class schools and commuting links. Here’s an amuse-bouche of what you’ll find on the doorstep of your luxury apartment at 555TEN.

The Culture

You could fill a thousand weekends with the glut of cultural happenings in Hell’s Kitchen. Report for duty at the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum, which is based aboard the World War II aircraft carrier “Intrepid,” and peer into the cockpit of F-14s and space shuttles. (You can visit for free on select Fridays.) In need of a soothing stroll? The High Line—located on a disused elevated railway—is one of the world’s most unique parks (plus the views of NYC and the Hudson from up here are something else). As for culture after dark, take the short stroll from your Midtown West apartment to Birdland Jazz Club, where heads have been nodding to noodling jams since 1949.

The Drink and Dining Scene

In this part of NYC’s Midtown West, you’re never far from a decent drink. Pull up a stool at Hellcat Annie’s and taste your way through a dizzying array of local craft beers. For sophisticated sips, check into the sleek deco surrounds of Ada’s Place and sample the Japanese single malts. When it’s time to eat, devour buttermilk pancakes and bubbles for brunch on the rooftop patio at Social Drink & Food. Have lunch at Friedman’s Hell’s Kitchen, featuring food for the soul like matzo ball soup and grilled pastrami Reuben. Or do things in style for dinner with Michelin-starred haute cuisine at Chef’s Table at Brooklyn Fare.

The All-Important Practicalities

As far as fun’s concerned, this part of Midtown West has you well covered. But what about the practicalities? Hell’s Kitchen has this in spades too. By public transport from 555TEN, it’s just 30 minutes to Wall Street, 40 minutes to Jersey City, and a breezy 25-minute stroll to Rockefeller Center. Got a furry friend who’s always demanding walkies? DeWitt Clinton Park, which is a comfortable 15-minute walk from the luxury apartments at 555TEN, has designated dog runs. GoodMigrations also says there are 14 schools, 60 grocery stores and markets, and more than 800 shops in the neighborhood. Oh, and did we mention that, with its leafy streets, 19th-century architecture, and preservation areas, Hell’s Kitchen is rather beautiful too?
