Koreatown, Los Angeles.
Collapse map / See photo gallery

Everyone knows that Los Angeles is a packed and expansive metropolis, home to millions of people (and seemingly as many cars), but the relatively small area of Koreatown still manages to stand apart as one of the most densely populated neighborhoods in town.

An estimated 120,000 people call this barely three-square-mile expanse home, and those numbers only continue to grow as new folks move in from the plumped up markets in Los Feliz, West Hollywood, and the ever-gentrifying Silver Lake.

Its central location just a few miles west of Downtown helps support a hotbed of activity both day and night, from the authentic Korean restaurants and ethnic shopping plazas one would expect, to a huge concentration of nightclubs and bars (more than 500 at the last official estimate).

The vibrant nightlight is further supported by a large population of college-age residents, who have moved in to Koreatown to take advantage of the cheaper housing options.
