5 / 5

Easy to book online at short notice, and a good price. The location was easy to find, very central and the service in the shop was lovely. Luggage was kept safe and it all felt completely secure so I’d definitely use Stasher again.

Alternative luggage storage options in New York

Storage Centres

There are no lockers and left luggage facilities at New York’s main train station. There are a couple of traditional ones still around - including Schwartz Travel & Storage and City CoPilot, charging $10 for each bag.

While their prices are not as high as other luggage facilities, their storage locations are limited, with two or three drop off points across the whole city. Make sure to check on their websites if they have a facility close to where you need it.

Museums and Art Galleries Luggage Storage

MET Museum

If you’re planning on going to the Metropolitan Museum of Art during your stay in New York, remember that they only allow in bags of the size of a daypack. Luggage, carry-on bags, and oversize backpacks are not allowed in the Museum and cannot be checked in at the coat-check facilities.


MoMA - Museum of Modern Art

Located in the heart of midtown Manhattan, the Museum of Modern Art only accepts items up to 28 x 38 x 13 cm. Larger items up to 36 x 56 x 23 cm must be checked. Any luggage bigger than the above size won’t be accepted.


American Museum of Natural History

The museum has two coat checks located inside the main entrance and in the lower level of the Rose Center. Coats, umbrellas and bags may be checked for $2 per person, space permitting. Visitors are highly discouraged from bringing large items such as backpacks as they won’t be allowed in.


Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum

The Guggenheim Museum has a dedicated coat room for small backpacks, umbrellas and stroller. Bear in mind that luggage and large begs are not permitted in the museum and cannot be checked in.

Luggage Storage at New York Airports

Unlike other cities, most New York airports don’t have luggage storage facilities – security reasons being the main concern. Here’s a breakdown for all main airports:


John F. Kennedy International Airport

JFK Airport offers a limited luggage storage service – if you have a long layover and want to drop our bags off before heading to the city there are a couple of options available for you. It costs between $4 to $16 per day depending on the size of your luggage.


LaGuardia Airport

It is not possible to store luggage at La Guardia Airport. If you’re arriving at this airport and need to store your bags we suggest checking one of the luggage storage facilities in New York City.


Newark Airport

It is possible to store your luggage at Newark Airport, but to do so you must check with your airline carrier.
