Kips Bay was the site of the Landing at Kip's Bay an episode of the
American Revolutionary War and part of the New York and New Jersey campaign. About 4,000 British Army troops under General
William Howe landed at Kips Bay on September 15, 1776, near what is now the foot of East 33rd Street. Howe's forces defeated
about 500 American militiamen commanded by Colonel William Douglas. The American forces immediately retreated and the British
occupied New York City soon afterward.
Kips Bay is only
a short subway or cab ride from many of New York's most famous destinations. Chelsea lies directly opposite on Manhattan's
west side; the theater district is not far to the northwest; Gramercy Park is due south; and to the north, the museums that
cluster on Central Park's eastern flank are served by the 6 train. Relatively low rental rates and a diverse collection of
restaurants, cafes, and bars make Kips Bay an attractive location for New Yorkers seeking a low-key alternative to the city's
Kips Bay parameters are somewhat vague, but it is often considered to be the area between East 23rd
Street and East 34th Street extending from Lexington Avenue to the East River.
