Six to Celebrate Tour – Hidden Hell’s Kitchen

Wednesday, June 12, 2019

5:30 – 7:30 p.m.

Today’s crowds enjoy Manhattan’s Hell’s Kitchen for its active nightlife, the wide array of cuisine, and its Off-Broadway theatre district. But take a closer look at the clues visible throughout the neighborhood and you will see a history of Hell’s Kitchen that has been left out of guide books, and ignored by plaques and markers. Fading painted letters on a brick chimney reveal the former factory of one of America’s most famous candy makers. A popular family playground hides its scarred past as the scene of a senseless murder that rocked the nation and inspired a Broadway musical. From the building that gave us such iconic songs as “Imagine” and “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun,” to the birthplace of the hit show “Seinfeld,” surprises await intrepid explorers on every block of Hell’s Kitchen. Join preservationist and tour guide Patrick Waldo as we explore these locations and many more, delving into the rich cultural and architectural history of one of New York’s most legendary neighborhoods.
