Neighborhood Slice Profiles Ninety-Two Year Old South Side Hardware in Great Kills, Staten Island

Neighborhood Slice is a web series that tells the stories about your neighborhood from the people who have been there the longest. In this episode, the show visits South Side Hardware, a mom-and-pop hardware store on the south side of Staten Island, in the neighborhood of Great Kills.

Jay Rachmiel’s father opened South Side Hardware in 1923, and Jay took the place over in 1965. Today he provides service with a smile to customers he’s grown up with, running one of the last mom & pop hardware stores left on Staten Island.
