Watch Storage Wars: NY
- 2 Seasons
Storage Wars: NY is a spin-off of the popular show, Storage Wars. Like the original, Storage Wars: NY follows a group of individuals competing with each other to win bids on abandoned storage units. The goal is to invest the least amount of money while making the biggest profit. They win, they lose, they bid each other up--it doesn't matter as long as their competitors don't make more than they do. The thirty minute show debuted on the A&E network in January 2013. It follows six buyers in the New York City area. They go to different storage unit auctions in the area, even as far as Connecticut, to find hidden treasures to sell. Some of the buyers have actual stores while some sell to individuals. Like the other shows in the Storage Wars franchise, each buyer has a persona. Joe, "The Legend", has been in the business for over twenty years. He looks for high-end items and isn't afraid to spend the big bucks to find something valuable. Mike, "The Hustler", does what he calls "flipping". He likes to buy a storage locker, rummage through, and sell the items quickly. Candy and Courtney are dubbed "The Flame" and "The Firecracker". They run a vintage clothing store out of their van they have nicknamed the banana van. While they are relatively new to bidding on storage units, they are not afraid to spend a bit of money for a good vintage find. Chris and Tad are "The Loudmouth" and "The Conscience". The two own an antique store in New Jersey. They hunt for unique vintage items that will appeal to their hipster clientele. After the bidding is over, they sift through their lockers to see what they've won. They quickly appraise their items, sometimes barely breaking even or not even seeing a profit. When a buyer finds that hidden gem, though, their excitement is palpable. They quickly find an appraiser to find out if the find is valuable or worthless. At the end of the show, the narrator gives a recap of how the buyers did and who came out on top. Whether the buyers make money or not, they will head out again--on a treasure hunt to find the next big score.
