Can anyone recommend a reliable and affordable plumber in NYC who will service the Bronx or Upper Manhattan? I'm sick of Craigslist duds!

Depends what you mean by affordable. Plumbers aren't cheap if they're licensed. If you're in an apartment, does your building have someone they recommend?

I'll see if I have a few in my lists, but I can tell you that I have a soft spot for Mac Felder, because I called in a panic once at midnight, and Mr. Schnackenberg told me what to do to manage it myself, to avoid the astronomical costs of after-hours visits. I also had a good opinion of Varsity.

No such thing as a reliable and affordable plumber, if you are somewhat handy and can follow instruction it's better to try and do it yourself.

I usually get references for repair people from others that I like. I called my oil guy who recommended a roofer when I needed one. I liked his work. When I need a plumber or electrician I have these two guys to call as a reference. They will not give you a shady character because they want more of your business.
