NYC’s melting pot supports a number of thriving ethnic hotspots. One of the busiest and most enjoyable is Koreatown.
It’s a small area, the heart of it just one block long, “Korea Way” the section of 32nd street between Fifth Avenue and Broadway.
The NYC korean population has grown to approximately 220,000, 50% of that growth happening over the last 10 years.
Nestled in the midst of a heap of Manhattan attractions: Empire State, Macy’s, Madison Square Garden, the Garment District and the Flower District every Kprean business success has supported more business success.
It is very Korean for people to associate themselves with successful businesses to ensure customers so tall vertical 3-5 story buildings in the area will have a whole succession of successful businesses on each floor, so there are over 100 small businesses in Korea Way.
And it’s a fun place. There’s a heap of 24/7 restaurants and food shops of different kinds along with lots of karoake clubs and spas. This tiny part of Manhattan is busy day and night as Koreans and tourist enjoy themselves mightily. COMMENT on your favorite naighborhoods in NYC.
