Our Origin 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, his two sons, Frank and Shawn, own 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 have expanded the business to 3 unique locations. Each with its own specialty. 

The Second location, First Avenue Supply House is the upper east sides full-service Plumbing and Electrical Supply House. 

The third location, New York Paint and Hardware: Yorkville specializes in Benjamin Moore paint mixing and matching. In addition it has a custom drapery and window shade and upholstery showroom inside of it Em Studio
