Possible move to NYC, looking for garage options.

Funny that this will be my first post ( or near as makes no difference ). 

 

My wife has a great job offer in Manhattan, and if she takes it, we'd be moving out there in the next year. 

 

problem is, she has a 74 '02 that we haven't started in on yet, and I have my 73 Toyota Celica thats nearly finished. It seems like theres great places to store the cars, but is there anything in / near the city that would be good place to look if i wanted some shop space as well? we'd be in NYC for the foreseeable future, so just putting the project on hold isn't something i'd want to do necessarily. 

 

Anyhow, figured i'd check! thanks for any advice anyone has.

Best place to look for what you are specifying is probably Long Island City.  It's an industrial area in Queens, and as close to Manhattan as you can get (just over the 59th St. Bridge).  Cheaper than Brooklyn (too gentrified in the areas closest to the city), safer than the Bronx.

 

You can walk or bike over the bridge or take the subway for one stop to get to L.I. City.

Awesome, thanks for the quick reply.

 

I hadn't thought to look there, but I will check now. Is it just a matter of looking up industrial buildings with availability and then calling to see who's willing to rent me some space? or is there a site or brokerage Business that locals use when they need workshop space?

Either way would work.  Local brokers who deal with that type of space could guide you better to find the kind of setup that would work for you.

I would just invest in a storage place and do work there or just take it to a shop to get the work done. The amount of money you'll put in storage can probably get it running. Welcome to NYC.
