 NEW YORK, NY

As most of you know we recently downsized from a spacious storefront to a much smaller office space in midtwon Manhattan, due to the infamously out-of-control commercial rents in NYC.  It was a little sad because Jerry has had a storefront presence in New york dating back to 1976,  lasting long after many of his fellows in this field closed up shop. But at least we're still around and accessible to our local and visiting customers, adapting to an ever-changing market. 

The bulk of the collectibles housed at our old 35th St front went to our warehouse in NJ. Now, due to extenuating circumstances, those items need to be moved again to be preserved, and there's not enough revenue to cover these expenses. We're asking for any assistance you can manage to help us cover these costs and keep the business operating. 

Jerry's is one of those unique New York Shops that offers the city a special specialty service and we would love to continue to do so long into the future!

You can also help by passing along our contact info to any cinema buffs and collectors in your life, as we may have that one special piece their collection has been missing.

 

Thank you all so much for decades of love and support.

Wishing you luck. Moving is never easy or fun but hopefully you will find the proper home for this amazing and significant collection.
