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.


Word Books, Greenpoint, Brooklyn

On a very happening street in Greenpoint is Word Books. If you're in the neighborhood it's definitely worth checking them out and I definitely recommend Greenpoint! Word Books' genres are across the spectrum and they also have events as well. In case you aren't actually able to be in their physical location they also sell books online . I love the messages in their windows! "Eat, Sleep, Read, Word." And also a quote from Audrey Lorde, "I am deliberate and afraid of nothing."
