Discover NYC – A Guide to Indie Businesses

Discover New York City is a guide to the local independent businesses that are the heart and soul of NYC. Support indie businesses!

I love the independent businesses in New York, they are the heart and soul of the city! In this section you will find bookstores, cafés, restaurants, arts & crafts markets and more. It's an ongoing project to list the best of indie New York so visit often to discover the real New York City. Note - I am not compensated for writing these reviews and I'm only writing about the places that I like.


Artists & Fleas, Chelsea, Manhattan

Artists & Fleas has a few locations in NYC. This one is in the Chelsea Market under the High Line park. There are a number of different artisans that sell jewelry, t-shirts, clothing, art and much more. It is a very cool market and when you buy from the merchants you are buying local and indie goods. Whether you want to buy a souvenir from your trip to the city or you live here and want to support the community, there are many great things to choose from. Artists & Fleas has a location in Williamsburg, Brooklyn as well that I'll be writing about in a future post.
