Barry Supply Co.


The Barry Supply Co. has had this enigmatic storefront on West 17th Street for the past 40 years. It reminds me of something from a Ben Katchor comic. Sadly, this week there's a FOR RENT sign in the window. I don't know what that means. But it is amazing they've lasted this long with such a gloomy and poignant window display of "hard to get items."

Spoke to the manager Carlos.The for rent sign
is for the floors upstairs in the building.
This is a unique place. All sorts of items, but
mostly window and door parts and hardware.
