The new facility has been designed specifically for the local community with a
large variety of sizes to suit the needs and demands of customers from
Manhattan to Harlem and the Bronx. The property includes free parking and
off-street loading docks for large moving vans.

“Growing demand for smaller sized units at our other locations throughout
greater NYC has led us to build this facility to meet the specific needs of
local customers,” said David Doll. “Not only does our Gerard facility offer
the right kind of storage at the right price, its easy access and free parking
make it a convenient choice for the 687,000 New Yorkers who live within two
miles of the property.”

Public Storage has invested millions of dollars through local construction
trades to renovate and retrofit the building to its high standards that
include new roofs, mechanical systems, new high-speed freight elevators and
insulated exterior panels. The building will also be energy efficient. The
Gerard facility is part of the resurgence in the area with the Yankee Stadium
and Bronx Terminal Market developments.

Customers can reserve space online by visiting, or by
calling 1-800-44-STORE. Grand opening promotions include $1 for the first
month’s rent along with heavily discounted monthly rental rates. Storage
features include restricted access, interior door lock systems and remote
surveillance monitoring after hours.
