- Josie's was a bar run by a tough proprietor and bartender named Josie. Some of Hell's Kitchen's seedier elements chose to patron this establishment, but it also curried favor from the other side of the law, namely lawyers Matt Murdock & Foggy Nelson, and their legal assistant Karen Page. If a day turned out to be particularly successful, Foggy would order up several pitchers of beer, and then chase them down with a string of shots (which he would come to regret doing the following morning). A criminal named Elliot Grote was also known to frequent the establishment. In addition to serving alcohol, Josie's was also a pool hall. Matt and Karen enjoyed playing pool where Matt kept up the pretense of being a normal blind man by pretending to play poorly.

- Metro General Hospital
- Metro General Hospital is a public hospital located in Midtown Manhattan. Claire Temple worked there as a nurse. Many of the patients who were wheeled in through the emergency room doors were often the victims of criminal violence. As the various wards suffered from overcrowding, fights between injured rival gang members would often break out. Following the Central Park Massacre, a flat-lining patient named Frank Castle miraculously revived and left the hospital. He returned sometime later as the street vigilante nick-named the Punisher to dole out some justice against some of the more criminal-minded patients.

Nelson & Murdock catered to the underclass of Hell's Kitchen, and as such, many of their clients did not have enough money to pay for proper legal services. Often, they paid the firm in the form of gifts or prepared food stuffs. Though Foggy and Matt were often poor, they were never hungry.
- Stanley's Bar

- Susan B. Anthony Hotel
- The Susan B. Anthony Hotel, named after the infamous suffragette, is a fictional hotel featured in the 1980s ABC comedy series Bosom Buddies. It is located in Manhattan and caters exclusively to women. This exclusivity also applies to the hotel's staff. During the 1980s, the manager of the hotel was Lilly Sinclair. Notable residents include Amy Cassidy, Isabelle Hammond and Sonny Lumet. Amy's male friends, Kip Wilson and Henry Desmond lost their home when the apartment they lived in was condemned. Unable to afford standard housing in New York City, they accepted Amy's suggestion to move into the Susan B., noted for its low rent. To pull this off however, Kip and Henry had to create female personas for themselves in order to full the hotel's staff and guests. Kip adopted the alias of a fictional sister named Buffy, while Henry was saddled with the unflattering name Hildegard. "Buffy" and "Hildy" lived at the hotel for some time with only Amy knowing the truth about their identities. Eventually however, Lilly, Isabelle and Sonny learned the truth, but Kip and Henry found a way to maintain their lodgings at the hotel.
