Good Questions: Used Industrial Shelving Resource?

Pin it button big

Hello AT,

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!

Best, Cate
