09 HELL’S KITCHEN

Attitude - - Places -

North of Times Square, Hell’s Kitchen was an of­ten- for­got­ten neigh­bour­hood that is now a ma­jor LGBT+ en­clave. Hints of its past can be found in the var­i­ous cuisines of­fered there which range from Brazil­ian to Turk­ish, as well as some long- stand­ing fam­ily- run restau­rants. It’s also home to Restau­rant Row, or 46th Street, where scores of the­atre­go­ers dine be­fore cur­tain- up. For day­time ad­ven­tures, this is the jump­ing- off point for the Cir­cle Line boat cruises to the Statue of Lib­erty and El­lis Is­land. Also wa­ter­side and moored at Pier 86 is fa­mous former air­craft car­rier USS In­trepid, now the float­ing home of The In­trepid

Sea, Air and Space Mu­seum, where you can see spe­cial ex­hibits in­clud­ing Con­corde. Hell’s Kitchen has plenty to keep you busy af­ter dark, too, with 12 gay bars in­clud­ing Ther­apy, Hard­ware, At­las So­cial Club, Vodka Soda and Flam­ing Sad­dles.
