Home to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Guggenheim, international designer boutiques, and some of the most spectacular pre-war architecture, the Upper East Side is an affluent Manhattan neighborhood located between Fifth Ave and the East River.

Recent years have brought in a popular food-and-drink enclave to the neighborhood, injecting a certain downtown coolness to the east side streets spanning from 59th to 96th. And with that has come an influx of traffic filled with eager shoppers hoping to descend onto Barney’s, and playful families hoping to climb the pyramids at the Ancient Playground, the popular playground next to the Met.

However, for outsiders and Upper East Siders alike, when car keys are broken and jammed inside locks, a day in one of New York’s most beautiful neighborhoods can easily be ruined. Luckily for those stuck in a jam on the Upper East Side, that’s where NYC Car Keys comes in, offering quick and reliable emergency locksmith service with a smile.

NYC Car Keys, which is a 24/7 FAST EMERGENCY LOCKSMITH SERVICE, offers the following services in the Upper East Side 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.

“My wife and I were in a rush to get into our car in the middle of a thunderstorm. After fumbling with the lock, I realized I’d broken my key and part of it was stuck inside the lock. NYC Car Keys was able to locate our car in the Upper East Side quickly and get us back on the road.” – Adam G., Brooklyn
