    Chelsea (7th - 8th Avenues bounded north on 28th St. and south on 14th) is probably the prime gaybourhood.

    Hell's Kitchen runs from about 34th north to about 59th st. covering everything west of 8th Ave. Mixed gay/hipster neighbourhood, lots of bars and shops.

    Other points of interest might be the West Village for the historical NYC gay village, and the somewhat ironically named Meatpacking District (formerly and informally: Trannytown) has made a recovery as a boutique village of sorts.

    These run south of 14th St.to Houston St. running from west of 6th Ave, with the Meatpacking District lining the riverfront on the west.

    That's the brief rundown.

    When will you be in town - maybe you can meet NYC RJ'ers on Saturday 16 July for our meetup?

    I'm in NYC about twice a year and I like staying in Times Square. Everyone has their own opinions on this, I'm sure. But I think Times Square is very convenient and central to the whole of Manhattan.

    The West Village and Chelsea has typically been the gay part of town, but it's a bit tamer than it used to be. Don't miss the East Village. It is still vibrant, diverse, and truly all-hours.
