Default Homebrew shop in NY city?

I'm pretty desperate to find somewhere close to home to buy supplies, so I'll put this thread out, instead of PMing everyone from the NY/NJ area. I live in Staten Island, NY, and can't find a Hombrew shop close to home. I found a couple on Yellowbook.com that aren't open anymore, so a lot of good that does. I work in manhattan, so that would be good, and brooklyn and jersey would be some options too. Even if someone knows of an online store that's close to Ny and could deliver stuff in less than a week, that would be cool, too. Thanks for any help you guys could offer.

The only place I've found is Corrado's in Clifton, NJ. Its not really that close, and their selection is hit and miss.

Buddy, I wish there was. There is nothing near here that I have found, and what is closest is CRAP!

I use AHS for pretty much everything.

I was afraid of this type of reply. How is AHS with their shipping? Anything less than a week. I ordered a bunch of stuff from Williams, didn't get a confirmation email or shipping notification. I had to call for a shipping number, and so far, it hasn't been updated this week by fedex. I know it's coming across the country, but 7 days is a long time to wait. Actually, this is the longest I've waited for anything. I ordered a bunch of stuff from NB, and it took 5 days. I have a batch waiting to be bottled, and I don't have sanitizer. Berserker, what's around in brooklyn, at least just to go pick up something in an emergency? Know any brewers in SI, I'm dying to check out an all grain brew day, to see if I'm ready for the switch from extract. Thanks for your help, fellas.

This one?

http://www.brooklyn-homebrew.com/Brooklyn_Homebrew/Home.html

There is also this - http://brooklynbrewshop.com/

AHS, Midwest and Norther Brewer is where I order from. I ordered from NB on a Monday and got it on a Saturday thats the fastest I've gotten it with regular shipping. You should order a few kits at a time to save on shipping and with reputable online stores you will get the freshest ingredients since they have a high turnaround. It takes 4-5 business days since the package is shipped to get from Midwest region to Brooklyn.

There really is not much in the NYC area. There are a couple of shops on Long Island, but none are that great. I've considered opening a shop myself, however in NYC and the surrounding areas, the rent is very high, and the margin on such items is relatively low, and the market is growing, but still small. It would be difficult to turn a profit in this area. Bummer. If I was more knowledgeable about homebrewing, I'd give it more thought, but I'm afraid I couldn't do it on my own.

If anybody in NYC or LI who is an experienced brewer would consider opening a shop with me, give a shout!!

The brooklynbrewshop doesn't seem like it's too good. Brooklyn homebrews website lists what they sell, which isn't that bad, in a pinch. Definitely nowhere near the amount of equipment, or ingredients as Northern, or williams. i've checked out rebels website, and it looks pretty good. NB took 5 days to get to me, which isn't bad. Guess us NYC guys are tied to ordering from the web. Thanks for the help guys. Anybody got an all grain brew day coming up? I'm looking to check it out and see if I'm willing to make the switch yet.

Wow, too bad LeBron isn't a Homebrewer.... we could guarantee he'd never leave Cleveland for NYC! We have some nice LHBS's around these parts!
