The New York Times Takes a Look at Hell's Kitchen in the Latest Block by Block

Block by Block is a video column from the New York Times which explores the history and culture of City neighborhoods.

In this episode, Block by Block explores the ever-evolving neighborhood of Hell’s Kitchen, Manhattan.

Hell’s Kitchen, historically defined as stretching from Eighth Avenue to the Hudson River and roughly from 34th to 59th Streets, has been undergoing rapid gentrification in recent years. New buildings are going up, and older ones are being converted to high-end residences. The development of Hudson Yards and the High Line just to its south and the addition of the Time Warner Center on its northeast border have spurred growth. Prices have gone up but are still generally lower than in surrounding neighborhoods.

For more on the neighborhood, check out the accompanying article on the New York Times.
