I've been living in Queens for a year with hundreds of books in boxes and no bookshelves. I've heard there's someplace in Manhattan that sells used industrial shelving, but I can't find it in the yellow pages or online. Do you have any suggestions?
(Industrial shelving is the open metal shelving used in warehouses. I tried calling a national distributor that sells it new, but their first question was whether I have a truck duck. Uh, no.) Thanks very much!
We would love to know this resource! We've seen this stuff on Craigslist, but want to know more. Here's a link to an old question that has some really good sources in it, one of which may be your silver bullet:
