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.


John's of Bleecker Street, Greenwich Village, Manhattan

There's pizza and there's pizza. For me the best pizza in NYC is John's OF Bleecker Street. They've been in business since 1929. Although the owners have changed a few times over the years it is still a family owned and run business. 

There are big debates about who make the best pie in the city. Everyone has an opinion! A word of warning! They don't take reservations and they're cash only!
