Koreatown, Los Angeles

'''Koreatown''' is a neighborhood (Neighborhoods of Los Angeles) in Central Los Angeles, California, centered near Eighth Street and Western Avenue. When Koreans began immigrating in much larger numbers in the 1960s, they found housing in the once-glamorous mid-Wilshire area. Many opened businesses also as they found inexpensive rent here and they could cater to the growing Korean population. Many of the historic Art deco buildings with terra cotta facades (Glazed architectural terra-cotta) have been preserved simply because the buildings remained economically viable for the new businesses. Hawthorne, Christopher (November 29, 2014) "KOREATOWN'S COOL OLD BUILDINGS POINT TO L.A.'S FUTURE" ''Los Angeles Times''

It is the most densely populated district by population in Los Angeles County, with some 120,000 residents in 2.7 square miles. While the name evokes a traditional ethnic enclave (ethnic enclave), the community is complex and impacts areas outside the traditional boundaries. While the neighborhood culture has historically been oriented to the Korean immigrant population, Korean business owners are creating stronger ties to the Latino community in Koreatown as the Latino population is booming. The community has become highly diverse ethnically, with half of the residents being Latino and a third being Asian. Two-thirds of the residents were born outside of the United States, a high figure compared to the rest of the city.
