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.


Zucker's Bagels, Midtown, Manhattan

Zucker's Bagels makes hand-rolled, kettle-boiled bagels. You can get bagels at any corner deli. But, they won't be fresh and you won't be able to get them hot out of the oven. At Zucker's you can! The owner of Zucker's Bagels left a job on Wall Street and opened his first shop in 1994. Their bagels are seriously good! I wish I had one now! Just a stone's throw from Grand Central Terminal.
