West of Eighth Avenue from 34th Street to 50th Street
Formerly known as Hell's Kitchen, Clinton is one of the few remaining neighborhoods where people still know each other on a first name basis, where small stores flourish and where the atmosphere bespeaks a real sense of community. It is a vital neighborhood, where most structures are no more than seven stories high retaining the historic character of the area. DeWitt Clinton Park is the perfect natural retreat with lush foliage winding around historical sites such as the Stryker Mansion. Pottery studios, galleries, shops and boutiques abound. The famous Hell's Kitchen Flea Market on West 39th from 9th to10th Avenues offers a myriad of antiques, crafts, art, collectibles and produce. Clinton also offers a great nightlife, from jazz, comedy and dancing to restaurants representing the best of every culture, from traditional fare to nouvelle cuisine.
