Luggage Storage Near NYC’s Top Attractions

New York is a fascinating place to visit. Thanks to its diverse population, the city is full of exciting things to see and do. However, sightseeing in NYC can be impossible when you’re stuck dragging heavy luggage around. Let’s look at some options for luggage lockers and storage facilities around Manhattan’s top attractions.

Empire State Building

The Empire State Building proudly calls itself The World’s Most Famous Building. A trip to the Art Deco architectural wonder is a must for first-time visitors to the city. Large backpacks, suitcases, and carry-on luggage are prohibited. Schwartz offers luggage storage for $10/day on the ground floor of its office at 357 West 37th Street.

The Statue of Liberty

A trip to New York can’t be complete without a trip to the top of the Statue of Liberty. Even if it were permitted, no one could climb the narrow stairs while carrying luggage. 

Visitors must pass two screening areas before entering the monument. There are no luggage facilities at the first screening point. The second screening point offers small storage lockers for $.25 for 2 hours. If you’re carrying large bags or prohibited items, you’ll need to secure luggage storage before reaching the first security checkpoint.

Central Park

Whether you plan to engage in sports, enjoy a picnic, or simply stroll around, you won’t want to be saddled with bulky luggage. There are no official storage facilities inside Central Park. Visitors to Wollman and Lasker rinks can rent small lockers during skating sessions. The rinks suggest that you bring your own padlock.

Madison Square Garden

If you have a long layover in New York, you might have just enough time to take in a game or a show at Madison Square Garden. But it’ll be tough if you’re loaded down with luggage. The venue has no luggage storage facilities, and management strongly discourages visitors from bringing large bags and backpacks. Schwartz offers luggage storage nearby for $10/day.

Find Free Luggage Storage in NYC

Very little, if anything, is free in the Big Apple. Many places won’t allow people to use their restrooms without purchasing something. So finding a kindly shop owner that will let you leave bags and suitcases free of charge may be more challenging than locating that proverbial needle in the haystack. Besides, while New Yorkers are lovely people, it’s a big city that’s full of scams — and you should be leery of turning over your belongings to a stranger for free.

All that said, if you only have a small backpack or carry-on bag, you may have a couple of safe options.

  1. Museums: If you’re going to a museum, they may check small bags for free. After all, they don’t want guests lugging stuff through galleries and exhibition spaces. So it’s a win-win. 
  2. Hotels: Hotels will usually hold onto guests’ luggage at the check-in desk before or after checkout for up to 12 hours. Click here for more tips on scoring free luggage storage from hotels and hostels.
  3. Bellhops: For a big enough tip, bellhops may agree to watch your belongings for a few hours — even if you’re not staying at the hotel. However, it’s a precarious plan, as the person may leave work before you return, and you won’t have a formal agreement to prove anything if something goes awry. Bluntly speaking, it’s a crapshoot. Everything works out eight times out of ten, but do you want to risk being the two times it doesn’t?
