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. Experience the hidden gems and places that New Yorkers frequent. Note - I am not compensated for writing these reviews and I'm only writing about the places that I like. 


Hollywood Diner, Chelsea, Manhattan

Hollywood Diner is one of many diners in New York City. The important thing to me is that they are independently owned businesses. That typically means that they care about you the customer. That is true of this diner and yes, they carry the standard diner fare including burgers and breakfast.
