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!

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. Unfortunately, I am unable to keep up with the closing of so many small businesses. So please check in advance that they are still open. 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. 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.


Joe's Pizza, Greenwich Village, Manhattan

In a city known for its pizza, Joe's Pizza stands out as one of the best! It is the only place that I'll go to for pizza by the slice. Be prepared to stand on line for Joe's! It is worth the wait. Joe's Pizza opened in 1975 and it is still run and owned by Joe Pozzuoli after all these years. If you want a real slice, Joe's is the place to go!

Joe's Pizza, 7 Carmine Street.
