The shelving was put up in 1957-1959.(guesstimate)
Its 3/4 inch, most seems to be 10-12 inches wide, and is 90% nailed together into shelving units with 2x2s at ends and centered.(10-12 feet long?)
I didnt measure anything.
Most of the shelving is just old, but not marred or chipped.
Some of the most used shelving has old price stickers or staples where people stapled on notes, but the bulk of it is just old.
Not as knotty as the cheap pine available today as the borgs lowest quality.
Im guessing theres over 1000 linear feet.(maybe theres only 860 feet, theres alot)
Neatness in taking it down doesnt matter. Denail it, or cut the ends off with a sawzall, no matter to me.
Next Thursday, a rubbish removal service is taking it all down and tossing it.
I guess it becomes landfill by next thursday night
Anyone can have as much as they want, or as little, you just have to come to the brooklyn queens border and get it. Easy access, ground level, easy parking usually in front.
For family members, Ill make myself available most times this weekend or next week. You only have till next weds.
Is straight and flat, even though its 50 some years old.
Id denail alot of it and take it if I had room.
There is also built in wood shelving, painted over though, but tons of it also put together in the late fifties. I believe its all pine underneath.
There is clean pale green and off white 4x7 sheets of pegboard.(noone wants pegboard, I know)
If anyone in the tristate area or even further feels ambitious, or wants practice wood, or just likes pine, you can have all the 50 year old pine shelving you want for FREE. Bring you hammer or sledgehammer, or saw, or BIL or SIL to help you load it.
Im paying to have it removed, it wont be any cheaper if I give away 500 linear feet, the price has been set and agreed upon. I just thought before it becomes landfill, someone might want to grab some of it.
FREE. (it will just cost you quarters for the meter outside)
(I can no longer offer the steel shelving, part of the carters deal was he is getting the iron to sell as scrap)
