Hell's Kitchen: A vibrant community with outstanding restaurants, world-class cultural activities and trendy bars.
Commonly referred to as Hell's Kitchen, Clinton has a rich, colorful history with a unique character unlike any other neighborhood in New York City. Spanning from 34th Street to 59th Street between Eighth Avenue and the Hudson River, the area earned a reputation in the early days as the hub of often "questionable" activity.
Today Clinton has been transformed into a vibrant community where residents can enjoy the comfort of luxury condominiums and access to trendy bars, outstanding restaurants and world-class cultural activities. The area is now a hub of great nightlife combined with the ease of a small Manhattan enclave attributable to many lowrise buildings in the district.
No matter what type of cuisine you're craving, the Griffin Court neighborhood offers an excellent selection of restaurants and cafes. Relax with a glass of wine after work and sample over 40 hand-made international cheeses at Casellula; grab a quick lunch at Azuri Café, featuring delectable Middle Eastern salads, soups and the best falafels you've ever tasted; indulge your sweet tooth at La Bergamote, which has one of the largest displays of pastries and cakes in the City; try the do-it-yourself Korean barbeque at Bann; or enjoy an intimate dinner for two at Blue Ribbon Sushi Bar and Grill.
A number of specialty food markets are also nearby including Dean & Deluca—featuring a wonderful selection of gourmet foods and wines from around the globe; Whole Foods—offering the best organic and local products in Manhattan; Amish Fine Food Market—with a diverse choice of fresh produce and hand-crafted artisan breads; and D'Agostino Supermarket—New York's popular grocer where you'll find the finest New York brands as well as local produce and cheeses.
After a hectic week at work, unwind with a cocktail at the cozy Moroccan-style retreat at ‘disiac; meet friends for a drink at Fusion or Hudson Library Bar; catch the hottest bands or crash an Entourage premiere at Roseland Ballroom; or take in a performance at Lincoln Center or Carnegie Hall.

Outdoor enthusiasts will appreciate Griffin Court's condos for sale in midtown west NYC because of the close proximity to Central Park—where you can enjoy year-round recreational activities and Hudson River Greenway—the most heavily used bikeway in the U.S.
You'll also enjoy access to convenient transportation for hassle-free commutes with the C and E trains at 50th and 8th Avenue and Columbus Circle at 59th and 8th Avenue. And, you're just minutes away from Midtown, Times Square, Port Authority, the Hearst Building, and Roosevelt Hospital.
