Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.

News of former First Daughter Chelsea Clinton getting engaged triggered this never-before-realization by me:

Everyone’s heard of New York’s a-little-too-hip Chelsea neighborhood. And everyone’s heard of (in one way or another) the nearby Hell’s Kitchen section of town.

What not everyone might know is that these two zones are, in fact, adjacent to one another. And furthermore, efforts to gentrify Hell’s Kitchen have led to a mostly real-estate bred movement to replace the colorful moniker with “Clinton”, which is in fact the historical name of the area.

So, you can see where this is going. Yes, you can indeed stroll from the 20s to the 50s on the West Side, and correctly claim to have taken a “Chelsea-Clinton walk”. Or a “Chelsea-Hell’s walk”, either way.
