Pearl Paint

308 Canal St. New York, NY 10013 | Chinatown | 212-431-7932

Location Description:

In the beginning, Pearl Paint was a humble, industrial paint store on Chambers. But as the Bohemian artists thronged to Soho, the need for paint supplies grew, and Pearl became the beast on Canalaselling everything from expensive canvases to origami paper. Although sometimes a bit haphazardly organized, the store has just about everything, and, thankfully, the staff manages to stifle snickers at ignorant questions much of the time. If the walk up Pearlas endless, steep, stuffy staircase seems too much, ask about the unadvertised elevator in back.
