Best Lamp Repair

  • City Knickerbocker

    781 Eighth Avenue, 212-586-3939;

    Around since 1906—and legendary in the theater and TV worlds for supplying prop lighting to the likes of West Side Story and Sex and the City—this packed-to-the-rafters shop can give new life and light to any piece, whether it’s soldering a broken swivel ($50–$200), swapping a European plug for an American one ($5–$7), or simply replacing a torn shade.

From the 2004 Best of New York issue of New York Magazine
