If you have expensive taste or are simply looking to furnish your home, you might be surprised at what’s up for grabs at no cost, by checking out what’s being placed on the curb, before garbage pickup.

“This is exactly what you need,” said PJ Gach of the Upper East Side, as she tested out a rowing machine that was left on the curb by East 90th Street. “These things are expensive too."

For Gach, there was no shame in getting some exercise, next to a pile of trash. That’s because she was overjoyed to learn that the rowing machine wasn’t broken, despite being left at the curb.

“We’re furniture detectives,” said Gach. “We’ll see something. We start immediately googling."

A quick Google search showed the rowing machine retails for about $200.

But instead of keeping it, she and her friend Sonia Izak posted a picture and the exact location of the machine to their fast-growing Instagram account, Nycfreeatthecurb. Less than an hour later, one of their followers sent an alert.

“Someone took the rowing machine,” Izak informed Gach. “Oh good,” replied Gach.

The two friends started their Instagram account last December, after noticing lots of furniture in great condition being placed on the curb during the pandemic.

Thanks to their own findings and submissions from followers, they've posted more than 7,000 items that were up for grabs.

“This could just be refinished and you’ll have a great piece," said Gach, as she checked the condition of some other furniture that had been left at the curb.

Both women have full-time jobs and have no intention of making money from their Instagram account. However, they tell NY1 the reason they have the account is to reduce waste in landfills and to help New Yorkers with an affordable way to furnish their home.

“People are just sending us these amazing warm messages, saying you don’t understand how much you’re helping us,” Izak said.

The duo said the best time to go on a search is after 4 p.m., when it becomes legal for superintendents to place furniture and garbage on the curb.

Izak said one Asian-designed bedroom set was among her greatest discoveries.

“A friend of mine is an antiques dealer in Florida,” Izak said. “He saw my post and messaged me saying, that bedroom set is worth $25,000 easily.”

Gach, meantime, said about 95% of home furnishings for her own apartment were collected from the curb.

“All my silverware is from the street,” Gach said. “These sterling silver salt and pepper shakers are from the street."

Not that she would have it any other way.

“There are treasures everywhere you go,” Gach said. “You have to stop thinking stuff is garbage because the fact of the matter is, it’s a treasure right by your feet. All you have to do is pick it up and clean it off.”
