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.


Murray Hill Diner, Murray Hill, Manhattan

Murray Hill Diner is another fabulous diner. Murray Hill is a neighborhood next to Midtown. This diner like others is great for breakfast. They have brunch specials on the weekends and they serve breakfast all day. They opened in 2005 and they are open 7 days a week till midnight. As well as breakfast they serve burgers, sandwiches, salads and dinners. When you eat here you are surrounded for the most part by locals.
