Discover NYC – A Guide to Indie Businesses

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. Experience the hidden gems and places that New Yorkers frequent. Note - I am not compensated for writing these reviews and I'm only writing about the places that I like. 


St. Mark's Comics, East Village, Manhattan

St. Mark's Comics describes themselves as "Bringing you the coolest Comics and Collectibles since 1984!" Most of the businesses that were on St. Mark's Place in the 1980's are out of business now. So that's really saying something. If comics and collectibles are your thing, you definitely have to check it out. You can see some NYC history at the same time! They don't have a website at the moment. But they are on Facebook.
