Since 2014, has been the unofficial ambassador for Hell’s Kitchen; we love it.

It’s the fastest-growing neighborhood in Manhattan with new glass and steel luxury buildings at the edges mixing with the classic walkup apartment buildings at the center. In Hell’s Kitchen, newcomers to New York rub shoulders with neighborhood old-timers. W42ST is at the crossroads of the world — we’re home to the best that New York has to offer — we’re home to Broadway, off-broadway, the best restaurants and bars that make this city famous.

Everyday W42ST connects thousands of our neighbors (and those who love Hell’s Kitchen but aren’t living here).
