Please go to our new link for Simon's.
Bathroom month wouldn't be bathroom month without a word about Simon's Hardware & Bath. Want to know where to go for kitchen & bath hardware, as well as locks, door knobs, switchplates, hooks and pulls? Professional designers go to Simon's at East 29th Street for one-stop shopping in common and hard to find brands...We've worked with them on a number of occassions and they never fail to provide great service and huge selection. A good place to go and look around, too, if you're not yet sure what you want. MUG says, "Everything's gorgeous, but not cheap. " and NYMag calls the staff "unusally friendly" and names it Best Hardware Store of 2004.
If you find what you are looking for at Simon's keep in mind that other places are cheaper, notably Smolka on east 33rd street.
