New York’s Koreatown was born in the late 1970s. A bustling neighborhood within close proximity to the Garment District and the Empire State Building, West 32nd St., aptly named Korea Way, became the prime location for Korean business owners and immigrants to set up shop. From humble beginnings consisting only of a single bookstore, “the block” now houses the 2nd largest Korean population outside of Korea itself. An epicenter for good eats, drinks, and nightlife, K-town is the New Seoul City. West32nd.com is your source for the latest and the greatest happenings in the Korean community.
