    It looks like her. She may be a serial runaway. Unless of course those in Seattle didn't know she was in NYC which is probably the case. You should forward the link to the authorities in Seattle. Great find!

    It's an area in Manhattan: https://www.google.com/maps/place/He...f9a02?hl=en-us

    Hell's Kitchen, also known as Clinton, is a neighborhood on the West Side of Midtown Manhattan in New York City. It is traditionally considered to be bordered by 34th Street to the south, 59th Street to the north, Eighth Avenue to the east, and the Hudson River to the west. The area provides transport, medical, and warehouse-infrastructure support to Midtown's business district.

    Several explanations exist for the original name. An early use of the phrase appears in a comment Davy Crockett made about another notorious Irish slum in Manhattan, Five Points. According to the Irish Cultural Society of the Garden City Area:

    When, in 1835, Davy Crockett said, "In my part of the country, when you meet an Irishman, you find a first-rate gentleman; but these are worse than savages; they are too mean to swab hell's kitchen." He was referring to the Five Points.[4]

    I Live in NYC, "The name Hell's Kitchen was perhaps taken from that of a gang that formed in the area in 1868, or adopted by local police in the 1870s." It was considered a place "hotter than hot." It was also the home of the WESTIES, the Irish Mob in New York.

    Today the neighborhood, is nice. It is not like it was back in the day of the Westies. In other words, there are busy streets and I do not think she would have been abducted there in broad daylight going to a laundry mat . There is no place in Manhattan that is unsafe during the day.

    For future reference, Manhattan is split up into neighborhoods with names, it will tell you what area of the city it is in. i.e. Little Italy, Kips Bay, Turtle Bay, Hell's Kitchen, Alphabet city, Harlem, Washington heights, Soho, Greenwich Village, Diamond district, garment district, China Town, etc. etc.

    The same goes for all the boroughs of NYC, Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island and the Bronx, all have neighborhood names.
