- Hell’s Kitchen refers to the area between 34th and 57th streets, and 8th avenue and the Hudson River. This was a popular neighborhood for the Irish in the mid 19th century who were escaping the great famine in Ireland. It was an attractive place to live for them because nearby 11th avenue was home to slaughterhouses, gas plants, and glue and soap factories where many of the Irish worked. This was a very rough neighborhood. Local gangs with names like the Hudson Dusters, the Gopher Gang, and the Gorillas, ran the neighborhood and terrorized it, so that even the police would only venture here in daylight and in groups of 3 or more.
- There are varying ideas about how Hell’s Kitchen got its name. The oldest idea comes from Davy Crockett. Davy Crockett said that the Irish he met in the neighborhood of 5 Points were “savages” who were “too mean to swab the Hell’s Kitchen.” Other explanations of the name “Hell’s Kitchen” refer to specific tenement buildings; one on 54th street and another on 39th street. Eventually, people started calling the whole neighborhood Hell’s Kitchen, instead of just a single building. The most popular legend says that two policemen were watching a riot on a summer night and one said-“this neighborhood is hell itself.” The other: “Hell is cool- this here is Hell’s Kitchen.”
