West Chelsea Referred to as Hell's Kitchen in 1943 Mrkt Analysis

I live in what is today West Chelsea; however, in 1943, area (narrow strip from Tenth Ave. to Hudson River, 42nd to 14th Street) was apparently referred to as Hell's Kitchen. See following link. https://www.documentcloud.org/documents/346364-manhattan-profiles.html#pages Anyone want to take a stab at explaining this (which doesn't seem to comport w/ other definitions of area of Hell's Kitchen)?
