New York's Premier Source for Antique, Reproductions and Contemporary Lighting Since 1906

City Knickerbocker has been restoring and repairing lighting fixtures since 1908. We started by converting gas fixtures to electric. (see History page for more about our roots) We maintain a large in-house inventory of parts and what we don’t have our many suppliers will. (Check out our list of Vendors.)

One of New York City's Oldest Lighting Fixture Repair Shop

Our skilled craftsmen can repair most lighting fixtures. We handle everything from rewiring a single electrical socket to replacing the broken arms of large ballroom crystal chandeliers.

Call us for information on an estimate for your broken lighting.

Restoring Old or Damaged Fixtures

Once upon a time, we prided ourselves on this type of work. We started with antique fixtures found in attics, and made them look and work like new. Nowadays, it is more efficient and cost effective for you to start from scratch and select what's available from our extensive collection. We can help you with period and style to match closely the piece you are trying to restore. Save your money and point sentiment elsewhere.
