We've been coming to NYC forever, but have never been to Koreatown until today. At a friend's suggestion, we walked the 2 blocks of Koreatown and took in the many restaurants and Korean shops in this section of NYC, located very close to Penn Station....More

Amazing little area in Midtown in close proximity to Times Square. Many eateries and little Korean shops. With a little wander around but not somewhere I would go out of my way to see like Chinatown or Little Italy.

stayed at the Courtyard by Marriott in Koreatown. Hotel was very modern and nice but didn't care for the area. Except for some good restaurants, lots of touristy stores and tons of bead stores.

Stayed in Koreatown at the NY Manhattan Hotel, which is near the corner of 32nd street and 5th avenue. Loved this area for the vast array of Korean restaurants, and the large number of restaurants in general. Lots of quick meal places, Panera Bread, Starbucks,...More
