Destination guide

Hotfoot it to Hell's Kitchen

Located on the west side of glittering Midtown Manhattan, Hell's Kitchen once carried a near-mythical reputation as a hotbed of illicit activity. But while a world-renowned nightlife scene ensures that a touch of the old hedonism persists, today this thrillingly diverse neighborhood is better known for its achingly hip loft apartments, alluringly upscale restaurants and ever-bustling markets. Find yourself a Hell's Kitchen vacation rental for your next getaway, and you'll be mere minutes away from the legendary theaters of Broadway and the neon-drenched spectacle of Times Square.

Things to do

Manmade and natural wonders around Hell's Kitchen

The Intrepid Air, Sea & Space Museum Complex lures visitors from far and wide to Hell's Kitchen. Here you can explore some of the world's greatest feats of modern engineering, including the space shuttle Enterprise, the record-breaking supersonic jet Concorde and the vast aircraft carrier USS Intrepid. Head north along the western edge of Central Park and you'll stumble across the American Museum of Natural History. The big draw for many is the awe-inspiring collection of dinosaur fossils, but you'll also find expertly-curated exhibits covering everything from ancient Egyptian mummies to the mysteries of space.

Activities

High culture and hedonism in Hell's Kitchen

Hell's Kitchen is located directly next to Midtown's theater district, where you can gorge on star-studded dramas and lavishly spectacular musicals, often years before you can catch them anywhere else in the world. Once the final curtain falls, head to a sleek lounge or hip brewpub before getting down to dazzling DJ sets in a cavernous supper club. After a well-earned lazy morning lounging around your Hell's Kitchen vacation rental, head to the Hell's Kitchen Flea Market, where you can pick up vintage fashion and hip homeware, all at bargain prices if you're happy to haggle.

Weather

Sizzling summer heat in Hell's Kitchen

Hell's Kitchen lives up to its name in the peak summer season of June to August, when sultry heat becomes the norm. You can expect plenty of sunshine at this time of year, although overcast days and thunder storms are also common. Hell's Kitchen vacation rentals are in high demand at all times, but you might land a better deal during spring or fall, when crowds are slightly thinner and temperatures are often agreeably mild. Winters can be extremely cold, although the frost and snow can be enchanting during the festive season.

Natural features

Hidden nature around Hell's Kitchen

Hell's Kitchen may not exactly be synonymous with unspoiled nature, but the district's waterside location and Manhattan's abundance of lush parks make it easy to escape the urban sprawl. Hudson River Park offers calming vistas and an expanse of peaceful recreation space, whilst Central Park's fragrant woodlands are home to wild animals, chirping songbirds and diverse plant life.
