HEATHER CREAMER WRITES – In Los Angeles, the 2.7 square mile Koreatown neighborhood is the densest in the city and one of the densest in the United States.
A study by UCLA showed that there were a total of 4,919 businesses in the Koreatown area.
Unfortunately, the gunman got away too, and has yet to be arrested as reported by KTLA in a recent report headlined Rapper Half Ounce killed in Koreatown shooting; gunman sought.
After immigrating to the United States in 1968, he noticed there were no stores selling the groceries Korean immigrants missed from home.
With its resilience through pandemics, race disturbances and crime, it’s no wonder LA’s Koreatown is often referred to as the best Koreatown outside of Korea.
