Although a small community, Koreatown does offer a selection of apartments for rent.

Factor in that you won’t need a vehicle – everything you need is within the boundaries of Koreatown, with many other services just outside its borders. Even night owls will love this area with its bars, nightclubs, and 24-hour restaurants within easy walking distance.

This tiny, 2-block community runs from 5th Avenue to Broadway and includes many high-rise buildings. The character of Koreatown in unmistakable and really comes alive at night with all the great shops and restaurants. Originally settled by Korean immigrants, the area really came into its own in the 1980s with the opening of many Korean restaurants and other stores.

More about Koreatown

Located close to several major attractions, including Penn Station, the Empire State Building, and Madison Square Garden, Koreatown offers an excellent location for new residents wishing to explore Manhattan on foot or via transit.

As one of Manhattan’s smallest districts, Koreatown does offer a lot in the way of shopping and food; however, there are not a lot of recreational opportunities within its boundaries. The closest park (Madison Square) is about a 10-minute walk; jogging opportunities and a playground can be accessed along the East River Esplanade, about a 30 minute walk or short car trip.

You can’t miss “Korea Way” which comprises the heart of Koreatown, located on 32nd Street between Broadway and Fifth Avenue. Here you’ll find amazing vertical marketplaces that go for several stories, as well as restaurants featuring Korean and Chinese cuisine. Within this area, there are bakeries, grocery stores, bookstores, and even a few nightclubs.

A few minutes’ walk from Koreatown will have you arriving at the 34 St./Herald Square Station, with access to several subway lines and the PATH rail line. On 7th Avenue, more lines are available at 34th St./ Penn Station. Several bus lines also run around Koreatown to access additional subway and rail lines to take you through Manhattan and beyond. Navigating Manhattan via transit from Koreatown is fairly straightforward and will save you the cost of owning and operating a car.
