According to the Huffington Post, “New York Originals” – an Emmy-Award winning television series – highlights 75 of the original mom and pop shops throughout all five boroughs in New York City in its new book.

      love it! NYC is so awesome. though i didn’t live there, i don’t consider myself a tourist because i visited regularly for work when i was in the NE. i love just sitting on the sidewalks, people watching, and being part of the bustle. sights, sounds, and people of NYC have inspired many of my lyrics (i’m a singer/songwriter). i actually do a video blog and just put up an episode that features part of my song “Bleecker St. Bossa) which was inspired by a walk down that main drag one october afternoon. Anyway, love that you are highlighting the mom & pops. NY is so unique—i just hope it doesn’t lose that special side in the coming years! thanks
