So very excited to see that Mark Cuban’s Landmark Theater chain has selected to locate a new state-of-the art independent film multiplex in Hell’s Kitchen, Mid-town West, Manhattan. This appeals to me as a long time resident of the neighborhood and as a filmmaker, marketer and distributor of independent film. It’s always great to see investment in independently produced content and the audiences that support it. Take a look. I cannot wait for the opening!
Living in Hell’s Kitchen (HK) in New York City over 23 years, I’ve seen the neighborhood change dramatically. So, when I saw this feature piece on HK in the New York Times, I was thrilled. As the New York Times points out, many residents affectionately call the area “Hell’s Kitchen” vs. Clinton or MiMA which officials and developers concocted to polish up the area’s seedier past. No matter what you call it, you won’t find a more diverse, energetic, creative, tolerant and entertaining neighborhood in all of New York City. And for all you foodies out there, HK’s is home to the international food festival held each Spring on 9th Avenue reflected by the many reasonably priced restaurants and food merchants featuring food from every corner of the globe. If you’re not already here, you really should check it out. If you’re interested in buying or renting here, give me a call and I’ll show you some great spots you can call home. Check out the NY Times video on HK!
I’ve been a resident of Hell’s Kitchen (Clinton, North Chelsea, Chelsea North, Midtown West, etc., etc.) for over 22 years now. If you read my blog regularly it’s no surprise that I just love living here. In my opinion, it’s one of the most diverse , dynamic and “real” neighborhoods in NYC. But don’t take my word for it. Check out this terrific article from this past Sunday’s New York Times Real Estate section and then give me a call for an appointment to tour some of the new and the old that the “Kitchen” has to offer.
