Interesting Facts

As noted earlier, Hell’s Kitchen has grown in stature to have a more urban and cosmopolitan outlook. It has also experienced significant sociocultural adjustments over the years. For instance, it now has a large LGBTQ population as well as many LGBTQ businesses, including bars and restaurants.

There are several interesting historical accounts about how the town came to be called Hell’s Kitchen. One account that dates as far back as the 1880s has it that a reporter with New York Times visited the West 30s section with a police escort to investigate a crime that involved killings. 

As they moved around, the state of a particular tenement at 39th Street caught the reporter’s eye, and he promptly called it “Hell’s Kitchen” before describing the whole section as perhaps the lowest and filthiest in the city.

From then on, the name Hell’s Kitchen was used to denote 39th Street between 9th and 10th avenues, and later, other neighboring streets and the entire town.

What today is known as Hell’s Kitchen was initially a small native American fishing settlement. In the 19th century, many Irish immigrants fleeing the Great Potato Famine in their homeland started to arrive and settle in the village. With time, the Irish became the dominant group in the town despite the presence of small Jewish, German and Italian immigrants.

From the late 1980s to the 1990s, rapid gentrification brought a new lease of life to New York and lost a significant territorial advantage as the town transformed. There was an influx of a new, more affluent class into the emerging high-rise buildings and other facilities, both for residential and commercial purposes.



How to Find an Apartment to Rent

Decades of gentrification have transformed Hell’s Kitchen from a dreaded crime-infested locality to an urbanized, well-organized, safe town and a desirable abode for many individuals and businesses. However, one consequence of the town’s rising status is a demand-driven price increase in either renting or purchasing a property.

To cater to rising demand, several new residential and commercial buildings have been constructed, while many old structures have been renovated. Samuel Jackson, Madonna, and Alicia Keys are just some of the celebrities that have called Hell’s Kitchen home.

If you are looking to rent an apartment in Hell’s Kitchen, one good option is to solicit the services of several real estate agencies that have a vast knowledge of available properties in the area. However, your number one choice in Hell’s Kitchen Moving Company can assist you in finding your desired apartment by linking you up with a reliable and trustworthy real estate agent or company to make sure you have peace of mind.

Cost of Living in Hell's Kitchen

The increasing urbanization and other changes rapidly going on in Hell’s Kitchen have also impacted the overall cost of living in the area. From a rental perspective, average rent in the town now ranks among the highest in the 5 New York boroughs.

Research indicates that the average rent of a one-bedroom apartment in Hell’s Kitchen in 2022 is $3000. For a two-bedroom apartment, you’ll have to spend around $4,350. Three- and four-bedroom apartments go for about $5,000 and $6,000, respectively.  

If you are looking for property to purchase rather than rent, you may have to settle for condos and co-ops since they are the most abundant designs in Hell’s Kitchen and other areas of Manhattan. It is hard to find townhouses for sale, unlike apartments, which are a lot more plentiful. You’ll see most of Hell Kitchen’s townhouses along the western axis of the town.

Purchase prices vary according to size. For instance, one- and two-bedroom apartments will cost you around $997,500 and $1,645,000, respectively, on average. For a 3-bedroom apartment, budget around $3,135,000, and $8,500,000 for a 4-bedroom apartment.

If you intend to purchase an apartment in Hell’s Kitchen or any other New York neighborhood, note that the average down payment on an apartment is about 27.1%. For those renting an apartment with a fee, the fee will add approximately 15% on top of your monthly rent (though it is possible to negotiate the rate down).
