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.


Pedro's, Dumbo, Brooklyn

Pedro's serves traditional Mexican and Dominican cuisine and it has a small bar. I've never been disappointed eating here. Th staff is friendly and the atmosphere lively. They also have sidewalk seating when the weather is nice. It is a quick walk from Brooklyn Bridge Park and one of the few places that I'll eat at in Dumbo since the neighborhood has become so trendy and often over priced. 

Pedro's Bar & Restaurant, 73 Jay Street.
