I love Home Depot - and, no, I haven't lived in the suburbs in years. Home Depot is the do-it-yourself answer for urban dwellers. They just have about everything you might need for a home improvement project in one large space in Chelsea, complete with self-checkout!
Whether you want to fix something in your rent-controlled digs to avoid a rate hike or improve your brand new 2 bdrm/2 bth co-op, go for the Orange! Hit Home Depot and ask the INCREDIBLY NICE staff for some assistance.
