Midtown West offers everything from performing arts to culinary arts along with a classic and memorable skyline. Along with Times Square, Restaurant Row, and Broadway, Midtown West is home to many who work in around midtown. Clinton, formerly referred to as Hell's Kitchen, sits comfortably in the area west of 8th Avenue. It was once known as the city's dirtiest, most crime-ridden areas. Despite the efforts of police and the area's respectable citizens, its reputation stuck throughout the 20th century. But no matter what you call it, the area has shed all negative illusions and is a fine example of a successful ethnically mixed neighborhood. Local residents and many New Yorkers can appreciate the more sophisticated name, but still prefer Hell's Kitchen, knowing full well that it's far from hellish anymore.

Made up of about 20 streets lined with attractive brick row houses, lush trees and garden boxes, Clinton is home to a diversity of residents ranging from descendants of European immigrants of previous centuries to the more recent Latin American and Asian transition. Its homogenous housing, predominantly five- or six-story walkups, is famous throughout Manhattan, with different features apparent inside each apartment. Newly renovated buildings, of course, have much more bathroom, kitchen and closet space than older designs. Loyal to their neighborhood, Clinton residents are quite active in local politics and in area preservation. People tend to live in Clinton for a lifetime, secure with the fact that they have discovered a raw and valuable gem in Manhattan.
