Just Steps from Many of the Popular Manhattan Attractions…
The Skyline Hotel is located in a neighborhood known as Clinton - and historically as Hell's Kitchen. "West Side Story" was filmed only a few blocks down the Street. This once "notorious" neighborhood has changed dramatically within the last few years. Tree lined streets, flower gardens and window boxes are seen in this once infamous rough area of docks, ships and immigrants.
This is not to say shipping is no longer a part of this historic area. Now major passenger ships dock from mid-March through mid-October at the new Cruise Terminal a few blocks away. This neighborhood also is home to many recording studios such as Sony Records and Hit Factory, where John Lennon was recording on the night he was killed. Syndicated TV shows have studios in the area; and many TV and movie companies do location shots.
Manhattan Area Attractions and Landmarks
Restaurants from every nationality and within all price ranges abound on 9th Avenue from 42nd Street to 57th Street.

Important most of all is our Continental/Italian Restaurant 1050 which serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
