The idea of Home depot in manhattan seems a little weird to me, after all, most of us rent -- home improvement projects just aren't really an option. That said, I've found this store comes in very handy on a number of counts. First, their small appliances aisle has a much better selection (with a better price range) than the nearby Best Buy -- if you're looking for a coffee maker, this is the place to go. Secondly, the folks in the paint department were very helpful when it came time to figure out which shade of white to use to match the walls (and cover scuffs) when moving out of an apartment. Finally, they have good home decorating supplies -- my curtains and rods are from there, and they have a great selection of rugs.
