I'm just curious. Do you have any photographs of Hell's Kitchen?

Actually, I don't. Its funny you should ask that though because I was just there. My father owns a bar on 9th Ave. I could easily take some next time I am home and post them if you are interested. Hell's Kitchen doesn't really have much in the way of sky scrapers or churches with soaring spires so I have not spent too much time over there. I could take some and post them if you like though, it would not be too much of a chore. Just a short walk from my apartment.

Interesting. I was just curious what it looked like now. One always hears about it being referred to or mentioned in history books. I'm sure a lot of people would be interested in photographs of any of the old bars there or places where famous people lived or were killed. lol

It used to be a really big Irish neighborhood but not so much any more. It's turning to a yuppie - ish kind of place. And its not so tough anymore, which btw is where it get its name... "What's hotter than Hell?" "Hell's Kitchen." I am sure you would be able to rack up some shots of the signs of the bars there... I will definitely put up some pictures next time I am there so can get see what it is. Hopefully I can do a better job than any travelogue!

Cool, I'd really like to see them. I know that it used to be an Irish neighborhood and it's famous for the Westies and Mickey Spillaine and all those guys. A long time ago, I read a book about it and always thought that they should make an actual movie based on the real characters. However, State of Grace was the closest movie I know of that came to it. I'm not sure where that movie was filmed, but the buildings in it looked pretty old and interesting.

Yeah, its a pretty cool place. It has a lot of character but all those Irish tough guys are gone now. Guiliani cleaned up a lot of those guys when he was a US Attorney in NY. They gentrified the area and it's a pretty bohemian place right now.
