25 NYC Black-Owned Businesses To Support, Separated By Borough #BuyBlackFriday #BlackOwnedFriday
New York is lucky enough to be home to countless amazing Black-owned businesses. Check out SecretyNYCs list here!
And just as we love to buy from locally-owned shops that make our NYC communities so special, it’s important to make a concerted effort to support Black entrepreneurs, who often face disproportionate challenges. In fact, according to NYC Gov., Black individuals only own 2% of NYC businesses (though they account for more than 20% of New Yorkers), and Black-owned businesses are less likely to survive after five years compared to others.
From fashion brands and interior design shops to yummy bakeries, Black-owned businesses help make New York the cultural epicenter that we love so much – plus they’re just awesome spots you really don’t want to miss out on.
Separated by borough, here’s a list of 25 Black-owned businesses you can support all year long.
