Knowledgeable and helpful even though they didn't handle the residential locks I was inquiring about. If you have an office related security issue, these guys seem to be the ones to go to.

Nice guys in the shop but they don't do residential locksmithing or key cutting anymore.  They were kind enough to give me info about another locksmith at nearby tho.

Unfortunately, as of March 1, 2012, Alco stopped cutting residential keys. I found this out when I went there today to get my apartment keys duplicated, but they kindly recommended Monkey's, on 39th and Madison. It was very nice of them to offer a replacement locksmith.

This place does not do keys anymore. They refrer you out to 265 Madison - Mankeys. That one is pretty good - 2 bucks for a key and its incredibly fast.

Very quick and cheap (3 keys for less than $5), the guys in there were friendly too.

Like other customers I discovered it was hard to find. This shop is in the Chrysler Building's shopping arcade in the basement of the Chrysler Building. You need to go in the big grand Chryslet Building 405 Lexington entrance and once you're in the lobby go downstairs (black stairs to the right as you come in the 405 entrance), then head left at the bottom of the stairs to find the shop. The little shop isn't pretty, but it gets the job done quickly & cheaply.

I come out of Grand Central and think is the closest locksmith to the station. It's located downstairs so it took me a few minutes wandering around 405 Lexington until I figured it out.
It's a small space but not busy at 10 am. They cut a key for me in less than a minute. It was $1.57 with tax or something like that. I will definitely be back the next time I need a key. There is a weird shortage of locksmiths in midtown.

Incredibly quick, efficient and friendly. $1.50 for a house key - I think that's cheap, right? AND I can get there from my office entirely underground. It makes me feel like I'm getting a key cut not for my apartment... but for my top secret superhero lair!

I had no cash on me (doh) so I ran up to the ATM, and when I came back to pay them, and thank them, they said 'wow, we're just happy you came back'. How horrid are Midtown suits that they would be surprised by me paying for my key??! Sad.

Nope. Never again.  The slimey locksmiths that they send out try to pull a "bait and switch"-like tactic on unsuspecting females. They tried to charge me $295 to pick my door lock!  But they didn't pull one over on ME!  Think again, b*tch.

Finding myself locked out of my apartment last night with no spare, my landlord was a 2 hour drive away, and my super was an hour away.  He suggested I call a locksmith to pick the lock, because it wouldn't be expensive and they would get there quicker than he would.  He gave me 3 numbers, I called this one. Nope. NEVER AGAIN.

The lady said  that it would be $45 and he would be out there in 20 minutes.  The guy calls and confirms he will be out here in 20 mins.  An HOUR passes.  Finally, he gets here as I'm waiting in my lobby.  He calls me on my cell phone while he is double parked outside of my building and tries to get me to stand outside and guard his car so he won't get a ticket.  I told him NO, and it's not my problem if he double parks.  He says that if he gets one, who is going to pay? implying that I should volunteer.  TOUGH LUCK, buddy, I've been waiting for you for an HOUR.

We walk to my apartment door.  
Locksmith: it is $65.  
Me: Um, no, the lady told me it would be $45.  
L: Oh OK, $45.

L: You have a heavy duty lock.  If I can open it with just a regular pick, it would be $55.  
M: What?  It's supposed to be only $45.
L: Well, that's just for me to get here, $55 if I can open the door.
M: What? no, it's $45 for the SERVICE.  You haven't done anything yet.
L: No it's $45 for the appointment. Give me $55 if I can open the door with my pick.
M: No, $45 for SERVICE.  Just like I would pay $50 for a cable guy to fix my cable.  Not $50 to RESERVE an appointment.  $45 is not a RETAINER FEE.
L: I don't know.  If I open the door, its $55.  It's up to you.
M (annoyed, but wanting to get in my door): Whatever.  $55 instead of $45, IF you get this door open? but only $45 if you don't get it open?
L: Yes, $55 if I open the door.
M: Whatever, just open my door.
He sticks a metal rod in the key hole and wiggles it for 10 seconds.  It does nothing.

L: Well, now if I use my "special" tools, it would be $195.
M: WHAT?
L: $195. and I don't know if it will open your door.
M: You've got to be kidding me.
L: Lady, do you want to get in your apartment?
M: You haven't done anything for me yet! It is supposed to be $45 for service, and I haven't received any service from you at all!
L: It's only $195 if I can open your door with my special tools.  Otherwise, you can call another locksmith and wait another hour. What do you want to do? it's $195.

I give him a staredown as I call my super and tell him that he needs to get over here and bring me the extra set of keys even if I have to wait an hour.

I tell the locksmith to pack his things and get the F out of my face. (I didn't use the F-bomb, for my own safety, but I really wanted to).

He tells me then that I have to pay him $45 for the service to get out here, $55 for the first attempt, and $195 for the second attempt.  He was going to charge me $295 for doing nothing and wasting my time for 10 minutes!

M: WHAT?  It is only supposed to be $45 for SERVICE.  You have changed the price on me 3 times and I'm not buying it.  There is no additional $55 for the 1st attempt and $195 for a second attempt.  You DID NOTHING for me, but come out here.

L: Fine, then $45 plus the $55 for the first attempt.  Lady, I'm taking time out of my life to HELP YOU.  I left my wife, my newborn baby, and my sick mother to help YOU.

M (in my cold-hearted tone): NO WAY will I pay you that, you did NOTHING, I could have stood there and poked a wire metal hanger in that keyhole myself!! What do you think? You are an all-mighty doctor to be charging $300 for 10 minutes of doing nothing?! I am only paying you $45 for you coming out here and "assessing" my lock.  I'm only paying you $45 for a so-called SERVICE that was never provided.  I will only pay $45, I'M BEING GENEROUS with you.

We argue for 10 more minutes in the hallway.  Finally, he takes the $45.  He calls me a cold, mean, and rude and claimed that I am "cheating" him out of money.  I tell him to get out of here before I call the PoPo for trying to take advantage of my situation.

DO NOT use this place.  They must think they are doctors or something to charge what they tried to charge me.  BULL SH*T is what I say.  Get the F out of my face.
