Hell’s Kitchen via Tdorante10 / Wiki Commons
Hell’s Kitchen used to be a no-go zone. It was a gritty section of New York City with dangerous gang warfare and violent streets. Although West Side Story does not have any specific references (aside from its title), the plot, which was based on fractured race relations, was the story of Hell’s Kitchen pre-1990s–minus all the singing and dancing.
But Tyler Whitman, a Triplemint broker and a proud Hell’s Kitchen resident, says there is actually quite a bit of singing that still goes on today. The ‘hood retains some grit, in a charming New York way, but it is a genuine residential neighborhood in the midst of big changes, as new buildings and businesses spring up every day. But unlike a lot of other up-and-coming neighborhoods, Hell’s Kitchen has flown rather under the radar, with many New Yorkers still believing it’s an extension of Midtown or a stopover spot for dinner. Ahead, we break down why those in the know are moving to Hell’s Kitchen and all the amenities it has to offer for people to stay awhile.
To hell and back!

CetraRuddy‘s through-block rental development 535W43 is now complete, and this past Thursday the development team threw a grand opening event inside the Hell’s Kitchen haven. The finished product ranks as one of the neighborhood’s most handsome new additions, comprised of two 14-story towers whose street-facing facades are clad in an industrial-inspired skin of multi-tone bricks, grand casement windows, and dark metal accents.
Across its 263,300 square feet of floor area are 180 no-fee apartments ranging from studios to two-bedrooms. For a limited time, the leasing team headed by Douglas Elliman is offering new renters one month free on newly signed leases. Seven apartments are now on the market with net-effective rents starting at $3,000/month for studios, $4,080 for one-bedrooms, and $6,785 for two-bedrooms.
