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.


Lucid Cafe, Murray Hill, Manhattan

Lucid Cafe is a tiny little cafe in Midtown. They have seating for 7 people. The coffee is good and next time I'll try a pastry. They look yummy. They are very friendly and it's a little escape from the hustle and bustle outside. They don't have a restroom or a website. If you are looking for a coffee in the area do stop by.
