Walking Photo Tours and Street Photography Workshops in NYC

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. Note - I am not compensated for writing these reviews and I'm only writing about the places that I like. I have eaten in restaurants and had coffee in cafes that I had thought that I would write about.


Crepe Cafe, East Harlem, Manhattan

Crepe Cafe is a real favorite restaurant! Whenever I have a street photography workshop in East Harlem (also called El Barrio) I always eat there first. My favorite is the Sidewalk Crepe. It is so so good. Okay, that's not exactly health food! They have sweet and savor crepes, waffles and soup, salads and sandwiches as well. You can see right into the kitchen. The staff is very friendly and they have free wifi. How did we ever live without wifi??? And there is a restroom there even though you might not even notice it.  Do try them out if you happen to be in the neighborhood!

Crepe Cafe, 1642 Lexington Avenue near 103rd Street and the 6 Train.
