Activities: More than groceries with kimchi, Koreatown is known as the place to go for barbeque and karaoke, of course. The main strip of 32nd Street between Broadway and Fifth Avenue has these two indulgences in abundance. The neighborhood is also situated in the middle of the jewelry district where you can peruse baubles sold mostly in bulk to wholesalers and to the occasional savvy shopper. It seems as if every large store in the world has a location around the corner on 34th Street. Finally, from first time visitors to old time New Yorkers, everyone should journey to the top of the Empire State Building once.
Check it out: Don’t miss the Korean fried chicken at BonChon Chicken on Fifth Avenue. For an unfussy rooftop experience with the Empire State Building towering over you, take the elevator to the top of the La Quinta Hotel on 32nd Street. Great Vietnamese noodle soup can be found at Pho 32. Sample the Korean barbeque at Kang Suh Restaurant (expect to leave smelling like delicious meat). Finally, revel in the private room karaoke experience at 32 Karaoke.
