Default I need glass for my new sump project.

Does anybody know where I could pickup pieces of glass cut to size in Brooklyn? I am in process of building a larger sump myself so that I can save money.

Yep, All City Glass is great, I've had my baffles for my 75 gallon sump cut there and they were very well done. They were cut to exact dimensions and they beveled the edges which made it very easy to handle and silicone in its place. I've had a lot of them cut and some very big but the whole thing was like $90 bucks. Some will say it wasn't that cheap, but when you see their attention to details, you'll love it. I was impressed.

I went to All City Glass as you guys recommended, dang these guys are amazing. I got my glass cut exactly to sizes I wanted and the finish was something I've never seen before. The shop is huge and they can pretty much do anything you ask.

I paid a little more than expected but I was very happy with the outcome. I highly recommend this place to anybody. The finish alone is definitely worth couple of extra bucks.
