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.


Landmark Diner, Soho, Manhattan

New York City diners are very cool. Many of them are disappearing because their rent is too high to stay in business. Landmark is fabulous and I am always happy when I walk by and see it still there. Cuisine is standard American food and a small selection of Greek food. You can't go wrong with breakfast and burgers there. When you eat here you can feel like you are in the New York City of the past and at the same time support a local family owned business. They've been in business since 1962!
