I called the Abbey Locksmiths from the listing I received from Angie's List. Mr. Levit came and removed two locks on two back doors, & installed two new locks. I was very impressed, Thank you, I give him 5 stars.posted on ANGIE'S LIST
I have used Abbey Locksmith for 15 years personally and for the 4 dialysis clinics I run and I have never had a bad experience with them. Prices are more reasonable than other locksmiths in the area. They are and always have been my go to guys:Lisa F. New York, NY
Great place to get keys made. It's a tiny little place with minimal room but I was basically in and out of there with new keys in under 5 minutes. Also, all the keys worked! I am constantly misplacing keys in different bags or who knows - maybe my cat hides them.... So when I go to a hardware store I will have 5 keys made of each. Almost always, only 2 of the 5 work and I need to go back to whatever hardware store once or twice more to get all the keys to work - so when this place made all FIVE copies that worked the first time - big thumbs up! Also, I just read a review stating they charged a lot to have a key cut -- their charge was very inexpensive at only a few dollars per key -- however in the past when I have needed another type of key made at other places - there are particular keys that are more expensive .. I think it depends what type of key . I'm keeping this one bookmarked as my goto key spot !Lu C. Sag Harbor, NY
When my 87 y/o mother decided that someone had entered her apartment, removed pictures of her long deceased and divorced husband(HUH?!) and helped themselves to the last of the meatballs and spaghetti in her fridge and didn't have the common decency to clean the plate properly (paging Goldilocks?), I contacted Abbey Locksmith and specifically requested a Medeco lock be installed on her apartment's door as I know them to be one of the best locks on the market.. The locksmith advised me that a less expensive lock would suffice after surveying the existing surroundings ( doorman bldg w/ CCTV system throughout) . Now, my "I gotta be me and live alone" mother and I feel safe and content that she's in a secure location and I've a few more bucks to send her on a cruise OR pay for time on a shrink's couch;). It was refreshing to deal with a company that doesn't feel like every dollar was the last they'll ever make. Abbey, has a client for life, in me:).Josh M. Manhattan, NY
Someone tried to break into my apt, so I called Abbey Locksmiths. I live alone and was very nervous. They arrived on time and were terrific! The price was less than I expected and they were very professional. I would use them again and recommend them to my friends and family. What really made me happy was that they left everything neat and clean when they left.posted on YELP

Been dealing with Abbey for over 40 years. They have distributed lock supplies to my business(Wankel's Hardware) and also fixed my locks and doors more times than I can count. I have never had a dissatisfied experience as their customer.Sean McMorrow
Rebuilt a 100 year old lock that looks and works just like it did in 1903. Responded to every service call quickly and efficiently.Anthony Wartel
Came in to get my master lock combo recovered along with a copy of a key. Great customer service.Denis J
These guys are true professionals. Me and my family have been using them for about 40 years, and they are probably the only locksmith who you can get on the phone over the weekend or after hours without being re routed to a service that sends your number out to 20 different locksmiths.Janine Young
Great work.Vin Corbet
