Great, like-new apartments with natural light

The apartments feel relatively new, even though they're somewhere around 15-20 years old. They have large windows and parque floors and have good storage and are spacious for a Manhattan apartment. The appliances are stainless steel and look new. The doormen are great, and management is responsive to service requests. The building sits right on top of a grocery store and many other amenities are in the area. The only downside is the distance from subway stops- most are a ~15 minute walk away.

Decent apartment, but very far west!

The building is pretty compact as there are only 8 floors. No doorman on the 55th Street entrance where I live but it's okay. The area is not the most well lit or safe. There are a few project housing units nearby and the neighborhood gets quite dark at times.

D'agastino and Dunkin' Donughts nearby are useful but overpriced. The new FIKA across the street is a great weekend haunt to just relax and people watch.

The apartment itself is a very typical high rise apartment - wooden floors, small bathroom (outdated fixtures), and small kitchen.

Neighbors are pretty quiet and not bothersome.

At night you'll hear the gallop of horses walking back to their station after giving Central Park tourists a ride.

The main downside is the few avenue walks to the nearest subway (and they're the longer avenues).

Overall, management is nice and decently responds well.

About Hell's Kitchen

Not just a home for learning and practicing actors, Hell's Kitchen is also loved by young professionals, performing artists, and students. A big perk of this neighborhood is the convenience - walking distance to subway and train stops, nearby grocery stores, and close to Fordham and NYU. There are m...

Hell's Kitchen Reviews

I've lived on the upper east side, the east village, and Murray Hill - so I thought I wouldn't like living in an area so close to tourist attractions like port authority and time square. But the area pleasantly surprised me - there are great restaurants and bars nearby and it's not that touristy unless you walk towards 8th ave. We're a 10 minute walk to the Hudson, where there are biking and running paths, and a dog park.
I think that Hell's Kitchen is one of the most underrated neighborhoods at Stern. It is a great location, between Stern and Central Park. During the summer, it's perfect! You can walk up to Central Park, go to the Hudson River, and avoid Times Square. The neighborhood has a lot of restaurants and bars as well - which make it a fun place to live. The commute to Stern is short - about 30 minutes. The only con is that the supermarkets in this area are slightly expensive (i.e. Whole Foods), and the open markets close pretty early.
A mix of city and residential. It can get a little louder than I would like, particularly during the weekends. It's close to a lot of good food places, but they are kind of pricey.
You will never go hungry in Hell's Kitchen! Lots of restaurants and bodegas, a few supermarkets (albeit overpriced ones) and bakeries. It can be noisy at times, but only during rush hour. Feels a world away from times square, even if within walking distance. Close to subways and buses.
Very densely populated area. Not much greenery but the park overlooking the NYC skyline is amazing. Lot's of Cuban and Latin American cuisine.
I enjoy living within walking distance to my office in midtown. There is a great grocery store a few blocks away. Traffic from Port Authority Bus Terminal (people and vehicles) can get a little hectic at times.
Many restaurants and stores. Bus is near by, trains are 3 blocks away. Close to west side highway if you like to run or walk. Several gyms in the area. The area is pretty safe.
On top of the usual people going to and off work, there are
a LOT of tourists with luggage. Good proximity to a selection of grocery stores (organic, mom and pop, etc)
