The best service, loved it!
I rarely write reviews, but I was just amazed at the service at this store! There was a helper like, in every isle, and every single person was friendly and helpful!

What a change from my regular Home Depot in Staten Island - there, no one is available and you have to chase them and once you fidn someone, they have no idea where anything is. By contrast, the manhattan store was an absolute pleasute. I got everythign I wanted in a jiffy and will definitely come back.

Recently I decided that it was time to paint my apartment, well actually I couldn?t look at the walls one minute longer, so off I went to Home Depot. I?ve been to lots of the larger home and hardware stores, and I usually end of feeling like an outsider but not at Home Depot. The staff helped me, and actually taught me a few things about the kind of paint I needed, as well as the tools, so next time it will be easier.
I opted to get some paint mixed and while I usually go for the flat paint, they suggested a semi gloss when I said I wanted to be able to clean the walls. Not only did the paint look great, I was really happy with the finish, and it cleans like a charm. Then I decided to change my light fixtures, and I received the same kind of customer care that I got in the paint department, in the electrical department.
They hire the nicest people at Home Depot, and thank god they know their stuff, because I don?t. Also the prices were right. The only thing is that it can get a little crowded on the weekends, so you may want to go on off hours.

What can be said. I have visited maybe a dozen home depot stores and expected the usual uneducated, disgruntled employees; If they were knowledgeable enough to be helpful to someone shopping at home depot they would be overqualified to hold that kind of job. So there was no surprise there. Just like every other home depot, they carry pretty much every material and tool one could expect in very disorganized stock shelves. But what I should have expected but didn't think about was how crowded and poorly laid out the store is.
It is in Manhattan where real estate is at a premium and in order to keep prices reasonable the store could not be a normal size, but that's the thing-THE PRICES AREN'T VERY REASONABLE. I have not been to the store on 23rd st yet but I don't expect much better. If you want to go to this store, know exactly what you want before you get there, don't expect any real help from the employees and plan on spending some time searching around to find what you are looking for.
There is a Hardware God and DOORMEN TOO!: I have to say that although Home Depot is underground, I love the fact that I can get any tool I need in an hour or less. Home Depot on Third Avenue is a MECCA of houseware needs. Short on staff, but long on STOCK, I have purchased everything from a fire detector to vacuum bags... even a ceiling fan --- love the BREEZE!!!. Delivery is a nice option, but what is even better is the doormen! LOVE THE DOORMEN!

There’s nothing like that feeling of rolling a massive orange cart into Home Depot’s massive, wide aisles, ready to take on the world, or at least your home, ready to DIY (do-it-yourself), and with Home Depot’s recent opening in Manhattan, Manhattanites can have that feeling too. It’s easy to get in touch with your inner-designer (or construction worker) here.
My favorite things about Home Depot are the “knob” accessories section, where one can find furniture knobs in everything from antique ceramic to gold-toned geometric designs- an easy way to update and transform boring furniture and cabinets. Home Depot is also great for plants and gardening. I purchased a huge tropical plant there 7 years ago for $7- and it’s still alive! Staff will help you cut sheet-rock into appropriate sizes. They also offer a beautiful selection of carpeting, including the kind made of recycled soda bottles.
The lighting selection at Home Depot could put Ikea to shame, and has styles to suit every taste and need. I also go there yearly to stock up on compact fluorescent (CFL), energy-efficient light bulbs… they use less than half of the energy of a traditional bulb (which should cover the cost of their much heavier price tag), and last up to 10 times as long (perfect for high hanging lights, where replacing the bulb is difficult). Home Depot is the cheapest place to buy them, offering economy size packs and such. They also have bulbs (in both CFL and regular/edison) that imitate natural sunlight (“happy lights”), increasing vitamin D levels, and staving off Seasonal Affective Disorder/Depression (S.A.D.) good for “one more gray day and I’m gonna ______” New Yorkers stuck in light-deficient apartments and the dreary months of February-April.
Home Depot has an extensive pest control section, and we know how many critters occupy NYC apartment buildings (and no, that monthly exterminator who visits isn’t really solving the problem- he’s just covering the landlord’s (legal) tail!).
I’ve always stocked up on the cheap, basic, white, formica hanging shelves, and interesting shelf brackets (in small apartments, you can always use more, more, more storage!).

This Home Depot does it for me. I don’t own a home nor do I have a backyard so I never need to buy huge bags of gravel or other items you would generally see in a large nursery. It is spacious, they have tons of merchandise, and the people seem really helpful to me. For some reason or another I seem to have to go get something I can only find at Home Depot from time to time. When I’m here I find myself constantly wandering the aisles and glancing at other possible items.
Last time I went here my husband was in search of a large toolbox that had every basic tool in it. One very nice worker lead us the way and explained the different options for toolboxes they had. They didn’t seem to have a whole lot to choose from but what they did have, was very reasonably priced. It was perfect and just what he was looking for. I was then off exploring other products in different aisles trying to justify why we need more things. Their plants were appealing and again, nicely priced, as well as many cleaning products too.
The two great things about this Home Depot are there are always people to help you and the lines go really fast. It could be laid out differently, but it is in the middle of New York City. I’m really glad Home Depots came here.

In desperate need of new blinds for my apartment, I headed to home depot with window measurements in hand and a determination to check things off of that day’s to do list. Ever since I was a little kid, I have been overwhelmed by Home Depot. The 18,000 foot ceilings, the hundreds of people milling about, faucets on top of paint samples on top of potted plants, and the loud buzz of activity are enough to make any child a little wonky. As an adult, visiting the Mecca of home goods still invokes a slight sense of panic for me. Lucky for me Home Depot employs a top rate, accommodating staff to help guide you through the madness of lumber, lamps, and Lucite. Steering me through to the right section of this monolith of a store, Greg (my new best home depot friend) helped me pick out an affordable, attractive set of blinds for my bedroom as mine are about a hundred years old and falling apart. I also asked Greg about other adornments for my apartment, and he was thorough and efficient in his explanation of where everything was and how to choose the right potted plant. I can’t rave enough about my experience of a place I had been formerly terrified of visiting.

This place is a joke. First the voicemail prompts are way to extensive, that must be simplified. When you eventually get a live person on the phone they are utterly incompetent and know nothing about the products they carry. I was disconnected twice then I was transferred at least five times. I literally had to beg the person not to transfer me one more time because I would either get disconnected or put into a voicemail. It took me nearly 25 minutes to place my order. If I could by this product locally at another store i would never give them my business, but that is not the situation.
