We have found another hardware store that makes us happy. Sid's Hardware is large and plentiful. There are so many people working there, that one wonders whether it is the benefactor of some act of patronage, rather than a pawn in the capitalist hamster wheel, that is the reason for its endurance. Their prices are competitive with the looming Home Depot and the atmosphere is so much more pleasant. Their stock includes anything from hammers to light bulbs to everything you need to redo the plumbing in your home...
They have an extensive selection of hardware as well as materials, housewares, lighting supplies, and heavy machinery. To top it off, we found our favorite salesperson. (We hope he's still there!) His name is Jack. Whatever we want to do, he helps us do it. When we told him once that we had a project consisting of drilling many holes into plexiglass, he not only supplied ample advice to stave off the classic pitfalls of such an act, but he gave us a little piece of plexiglass on which to hone our skills. We conquered the task and we have Jack to thank.
Go to Sid's. It is worth your while. It is directly across the street from the exit of the second stop into Brooklyn on the A train. They are open 7 days and they deliver.
