I mean he works out of a place called "Hell's Kitchen" I would THINK that it'd be pretty nasty down there.
That's the thing, though... when the comics began in the '60s, Hell's Kitchen was a neighborhood worthy of the name, but these days it's been pretty thoroughly cleaned up and gentrified, so its portrayal in Daredevil
comics is something of an atavism. These days it's often just called Clinton or Midtown West.
I think that's why Joe Carnahan pitched his take on DD as a 70s-set blaxploitation style movie. To set it when Hell's Kitchen was, well, hellish!
I've suggested that Marvel should hire him and do a series of low-mid budget movies 70s-set for him, Iron Fist, The Falcon and Luke Cage. You could even have a younger Nick Fury.
Of course, as Falcon looks set to fly in the modern-day Captain America: The Winter Soldier, it already looks like my wishlist is merely a pipe-dream.
