•    A New Korea: Businesses of a Blooming Culture   

    Very few Koreans actually live in Koreatown. The majority of Koreans in New York City live in such neighborhoods as Flushing. What then makes this tiny neighborhood located in the heart of New York City, near Herald square, a Koreatown? The fact of the matter is that K-Town is commercial rather than residential. Thus, it is mainly made up of its many businesses. Ranging from hair salons to all-you-can-eat barbecue buffets, Koreatown has something for everyone to enjoy. Teeming with culture, much can be learned about the Korean people through their restaurants, karaoke bars, supermarkets, and beauty parlors. In addition to taking a tour through the many businesses located in Koreatown, you will learn in this section how the early businesses roughly three decades ago facilitated the development of K-Town, and how the businesses today are continually helping the neighborhood grow beyond its current borders.
