Demolition Depot Video
Demolition Depot was created in 1998, and it has been at the same location (East 125th Street) since Demolition Depot, has been operating at location ever since (20 years). They specialize in vintage plumbing fixtures, doors, windows, shutters, railings, gates, grills, mantels, stone and terracotta pieces, religious objects and so much more. Their goal is to re-create and renovate period places, preserving architectural history by reclaiming building elements of unprecedented scale. Along the years in operation, Demolition Depot has rescued beautifully crafted pieces, certain to enhance the style of any residential and commercial building, restoration, and decorating projects.
We, at East Harlem, feel proud of having Demolition Depot as a member of the community and invite you to browse their depot, as an unique experience to travel back to early NYC times.
