Our Origins and Story

New York Paint and Hardware was founded by Michael Gorelik who immigrated from Belarus back in 1979. He worked hard as a Taxi driver, but always had the dream of owning his own hardware store. After he married Victoria, he got an opportunity to manage a Paint and Decorating store on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. This was the beginning of his journey towards achieving his dream. With Victoria’s help – she learned about draperies and wallpaper to help expand the business – they soon purchased their own paint store in 1986.

Some years later, Michael’s dream came true, achieved through nothing but sheer hard work – and New York Paint and Decorating officially added a hardware department. Today, Michael and his two sons, Frank and Shawn, run the business. Frank and Shawn have been involved in the store from a young age and share the same passion as their father. Together, they manage and operate New York Paint and Hardware along with another specialty store, First Avenue Supply House.
