Discover NYC – Your Guide to Indie Businesses

Discover the local, independent businesses that are the heart and soul of NYC in Shoot New York City’s guide to the best of indie New York!

Discover the real NYC in Shoot New York City’s Discover Guide

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. This is an ongoing project to list the best of indie New York so visit often to discover the real New York City. Experience the hidden gems and places that New Yorkers frequent. For more information on many of NYC’s vibrant neighborhoods, have a read of my Neighborhood Guides. I am not compensated for writing these reviews and I'm only writing about the places that I like.

Sadly, far too many of these unique, independent businesses close every year. When I learn of one closing I will move it to the category Vanishing NYC. They may be gone but they’ll never be forgotten!


Brooklyn Popcorn, Manhattan

So Brooklyn Popcorn doesn't have a fixed location. You can find it's truck in various location around Manhattan through their website. I love popcorn and they certainly have some fabulous popcorn in different flavors as well as basic popcorn. 

Brooklyn Popcorn was created by a group of New Yorkers who love popcorn and started making their gourmet popcorn in 2012. If you like popcorn it's a real must try.

 Brooklyn Popcorn, this link will take you to the map that locates their truck
