Midtown West
Hell’s Kitchen also known as Clinton is a West Side neighborhood of Manhattan. It is the area between 34th and 59th Streets, from 8th Avenue to the Hudson River. Originally the expression \"Hell\'s Kitchen\" referred to a rough neighborhood into a particular tenement at 39th Street and 10th Avenue called \"Hell\'s Kitchen\". The name was later expanded to the surrounding streets.
By the end of the 1950s developers wanted a more respectable identity for the neighborhood. They finally rejected the infamous Hell\'s Kitchen name in favor of a name resurrected from the past: Clinton, after former mayor and Governor DeWitt Clinton.
In recent years, the neighborhood has undergone trendy changes and got the alternative name Clinton who has gained in popularity. This neighborhood is becoming an upscale trendy home for the white–collar professionals and successful actors and gay community with trendy bars, restaurants and boutiques. The heart of this area is \"Restaurant Row\" on West 46th street. The new Theater Row on 42nd Street, between Ninth and Tenth, is concentrated with Off-Broadway Shows.
The Lincoln Tunnel, the Port Authority Bus Terminal and Broadway all make it a busy commercial neighborhood.
