This is truly one of the most cosmopolitan neighborhoods in the
United States. A mosaic of cultures and diversity, almost half the
population is foreign-born.

bread to pad thai.

played a large role in the neighborhood's revitalization in recent
years, and a stretch of Lawrence Avenue is now "Honorary Seoul Drive."
