Fun destination for food and drinks from some of the Korean community of New York City! The neighborhood is fairly small, but has so much to offer for a day excursion. The experience, however, is not all-encompassing of Korean culture. This is not Seoul in...More

Great place to eat Korean food, shop Korean brands, enjoy nightlife and karaoke (lots of places and restaurants are open 24 hours). But be clear, this is a single block and is in no way comprehensive of New York's Korean Diaspora; this isn't a residential...More

Korean barbeque is awesome and almost all of them are like cared in 32 street from Madison Avenue to fifth avenue. Big, small, downstairs, upstairs all over the place. The food is fabulous and prices are reasonable but beware of the local soji. Potent beverage

Many restaurants, grocery stores and shops - all dedicated to Korean products and dishes. You can find delicious Korean BBQ, Korean dumplings and a wonderful vegan Korean restaurant (Hangawi). A great authentic street to walk and eat in.
