Stories from Hell's Kitchen


Hell's Kitchen is one of New York's most famous neighborhoods. Yet its unique story  of change as told  by those connected to Hell's Kitchen  remains largely undocumented. We're here to bring Hell's Kitchen to you. 'Stories From Hell's Kitchen' is a immersive oral history project which takes you on an intimate journey through this fascinating Mid West Manhattan neighborhood. 


Stories From Hell's Kitchen is a memory palace, a temple of time. By foregrounding the relationship between people and place, the project uses oral history as storytelling, music, melody, art and photography and much, much more to reconstruct the essence of this very special neighborhood. This multi media approach creates unique audiovisual narrative of a captivating neighborhood. An integral part of this archive are  the voices of those who have lived and breathed change in Hell's Kitchen throughout living memory.
