Discover New York City

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.


Beryl's Poetry, Dumbo, Brooklyn

All I can say is, if you love poetry like I do, Beryl's is very special! A bookstore devoted to poetry! Wow! It is a one of a kind in New York City! They specialize in indie press chapbooks and books. I always discover new poets just browsing through the tables and shelves.

The atmosphere is relaxed and the people who work there are very friendly. It is a family run business. They often host poetry readings as well. A word of caution, their hours are a bit different than other bookstores. At the time of writing this post, their hours are daily from about 3-7pm.
