Are you planning your next trip to New York City? If so, you’re likely excited about all the sights and attractions you plan to take in during your stay. You may even plan to do some shopping at a store or two! While all of that is exciting and glamorous, one thing you probably aren’t planning on doing is lugging your bags all around the New York City streets.Read More›
Imagine this… You’ve been enjoying your stay in New York City, but the time has come to say goodbye. Your plane doesn’t take off for a few hours, but checkout at your hotel is right now. What on earth are you supposed to do while you wait until it’s time to head to the airport? You have a ton of luggage, after all! You could choose to head to the airport earlier than necessary and wait there with your bags. Or you could enjoy the remainder of your time in the city by seeing the last few sights on your list.
But how are you supposed to do that when you have all of this luggage in tow? That’s where a luggage storage service comes in handy! A luggage storage company provides a way for you to store your bags in one of their facilities. You’re then able to explore NYC without the extra heavy suitcases trailing behind you, weighing you down. When it’s time for you to make your way to the airport, all you have to do is pick up your bags and be on your way or, have them delivered to your location.
Now that you’re sold on luggage storage, you need to know how to pick the right one. It’s important to select a facility that’s trustworthy and reliable so you can feel confident your personal belongings are in good hands. Here are a few tips to help you choose the right luggage storage service in NYC…Read More›

We’re writing this post because approximately 50% of tourists who stay in the East Village and discover our Lower East Side location for luggage storage always say a variation of the same thing: “We thought there were no luggage storage or luggage lockers in the East Village! We Googled and nothing!”
We have no idea why nothing’s popping on those browsers, but let us share a PSA to anyone visiting the East Village, Chinatown, Soho or the West Village who needs luggage storage: City CoPilot is here for you.
Did we mention the 63 five-star reviews on Yelp? (That’s probably because of our novel concept to make luggage storage secure.) Or that we do concierge services like NYC airport transportation, luggage transport, and arranging NYC tours and attractions?
Don’t say we didn’t tell you!
We are literally the Beastie Boys song “No Sleep Till Brooklyn” right now. That’s right: City CoPilot will be rocking NYC visitors’ luggage storage and key exchange needs
eight seven days a week in Williamsburg this October! (We’ll keep you posted on the exact date.)
Opening our third store at 332 Hooper Street (near Marcy Avenue and Hewes Street stops) means we’re officially bi-borough, joining our midtown Manhattan store and Lower East Side flagship. We’re beyond excited to serve hosts, guests and locals in Brooklyn. Just don’t mind us if grow handlebar mustaches and buy drop-crotch leather pants.
Stay tuned for more details on our Williamsburg store…
ICYDK, there’s a giant map of the world in our Lower East Side store and it’s definitely a conversation piece, representing the guests who visit us from all over the world. It’s one of the many reasons we love our business — the chance to meet folks from other cultures and get their take of New York City. (Humble brag: several of our team members are multi-lingual! (Somos capaces de dar instrucciones al metro en español.)
Recently, a guest arrived and stared at the map, frowning. What’s the problem, we asked? He replied: “My country is missing!” “What country? “Malta!” This would not stand. We handed the guest a Sharpie and presto: Malta was on the map.
So we use this post to pledge that should any land be omitted from any current or future maps, guests are welcome to add it. Also, we need to get to Malta ASAP. What hideous scenery, right?

Did you hear the news? City CoPilot opened a new location in the heart of Manhattan at 777 8th Avenue. The Times Square store provides the same safe, secure midtown luggage storage and key exchange as the Lower East Side store, except package acceptance).
We’re especially proud to open up in Hell’s Kitchen because we have something our other baggage storage competitors in midtown NYC don’t have: a WALL. You’ve met the one on Allen Street, now meet The Wall on 8th Avenue:
It’s a simple concept, right? A WALL. A wall protects your precious cargo from thieves and the elements, unlike (cough cough) our competition in the area that stores bags and suitcases on shelves in full sight of street traffic, or worse, splayed out on the floor within grabbing distance.
With our new luggage storage space in the center of Manhattan, you buy peace of mind knowing our trusted CoPilot will tag your possessions until you’re ready to pick them up for a reasonable price, and that they’re resting comfortably and securely behind The Wall.
Big news. YOOOGE. City CoPilot now offers luggage pick-up and delivery — starting at just $29. The process is simple: email us to make a reservation at email@example.com and we’ll get back to you ASAP. (We’ll also ship your bags, too.)Read More›
We don’t want to name names, but have you seen the daily luggage storage or luggage locker facilities in New York City?
We offer daily luggage storage because we knew we could do it better than the competition. (That and there just aren’t enough short-term luggage storage spots below 34th Street.) How do we do that? Two words:
That’s right: we have a wall to protect your precious cargo, and a lot of the competition, well, stores luggage on some shelves in full sight of street traffic, or worse, splayed out on the floor within grabbing distance. Meet… The Wall:Read More›
