Since opening Crest Hardware in 1962, Manny Franquinha has become an icon in the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn through his dedication to customer service and focus on community improvement.
His son, Joseph Franquinha continues the Crest legacy by providing only the best customer service and top products for his customers. Shopping at Crest is a true New York experience with a staff that makes you feel right at home. Through his dedication and love for all things innovative, Joseph and the Crest Family have transformed the definition of Hardware Store.
At Crest, you can find everything from tools to garden equipment to art supplies, while also serving the community as a neighborhood general store. 
Crest Hardware is an exemplary family business that has strengthened and transformed with their community’s ever-evolving needs and passions. 


There’s a cadre of talented artists capable of turning lug nuts, bolts and rivets into show-worthy pieces—and they’re out in full force at this annual art exhibition.
