“I feel like Superman. I’m able to help people in their most dire situations.” –Mark Moshel

Children need to be picked up from school, business meetings must be attended, and important interviews can’t be missed. That’s exactly why NYC Car Keys will be there when they say they’ll be there, and the price will cost exactly what’s quoted, even if the job takes longer than expected.

NYC Car Keys is truly committed to helping good people get out of bad situations and on with their lives.


For drivers, navigating any concrete jungle is hard enough, but in a place like New York City’s East Village, getting where you need to go on time can sometimes feel like a miracle. Every turn brings tourists visiting the city’s greatest concentration of community gardens, artists trickling in and out of the Museum of Reclaimed Urban Space, and foodies waiting on winding, block-long lines for the latest trendy treat. Finding a parking spot on the busy streets east of the Bowery can sometimes feel like a quest, one perhaps even more challenging than picking among the East Village’s top eateries, bars, and hangouts.

And then there are the off days, where you can’t seem to find your car keys after a picnic on the East River or an afternoon shopping on St. Marks. When life keeps moving, especially at New York’s pace, NYC Car Keys is the locksmith in the East Village you can turn to in an emergency.

NYC Car Keys, which is a 24/7 FAST EMERGENCY LOCKSMITH SERVICE, offers the following services in the East Village area:


Changing the lock, allowing a different key to operate it.

Replace Lost Car Keys

Cut a new key using a mobile-unit.

Replace Car Locks

Removing the locks located on the car in order to operate for a different set of keys.

Ignition/Transponder Keys

The chip in transponder keys emits a signal to a receiver in the ignition. If this “immobilizer” detects the wrong signal — meaning that the wrong key is in the ignition — the vehicle will not start.

Removal of Broken Car Keys

When a key has been broken off in a car lock, both the key has been destroyed and the lock rendered unusable. If the lock was locked when the key was broken, the lock cannot be opened.

High Security/Laser Cut Keys

These keys have built-in built-in transponder chips and they need to be programmed at the dealership or by a locksmith. Laser (sidewinder) style keys can be cut and programmed for all makes and models.

Car Lockout/Opening

Utilizing specific auto entry tools including lock picks and wedges, cars can be opened seamlessly and quickly.

Emergency Trunk Opening

Trunks of any make or model with broken locks or lost keys can be opened.

Key Repair

Damaged keys, or keys that have been compromised by getting stuck or locked in the lock/ignition of vehicle can be repaired.

After spending the afternoon touring colleges in Greenwich Village, my family and I returned to our car to find our keys missing. We called NYC Car Keys, and Mark arrived within minutes, and was able to replace our keys easily.” – Maureen M., Long Island
