Northeastern Queens: Koreatown

Koreatown is a commercial neighborhood that starts in Flushing, Queens and expands into Long Island. Koreatown Flushing runs from 35th Ave to 41st Ave on Union Street. Koreatown runs directly east because of the inability to move in on Flushing’s Chinatown strong presence on the westside.

Pictured is the San Soo Kap San Restaurant located on Union Street in Downtown Flushing. San Soo Kap San is a reknowned Korean BBQ Restaurant which is opened 24 hours and is one of Koreatown’s best restaurants.

Assi Plaza on 39th Ave offers a dozen of the most choice Korean pears every New Years as a sign of grace & prosperity.
