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.


Canal Street Market, Soho, Manhattan

Canal Street Market is a combination of artisan market and foodie market. The food side of it is more interesting to me and they have a coffee counter, ice cream and different kinds of street food. There are also restrooms in the back in an area of the city where it's often difficult to find a restroom.
