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, Williamsburg, Brooklyn

Artists & Fleas opened in Williamsburg in 2003 to provide a marketplace for local artists and artisans. It is a fabulous marketplace where you can find vintage clothing, jewelry, t-shirts, and much much more. They are open Saturdays and Sundays and if there's a problem with the L train, you can also take the East River Ferry. Artists & Fleas also has a new location in Soho which I'll be adding to this blog in the near future. You can find the Chelsea Market location listed here under artisan markets.
