Mark. That's his name. Here's his number: 917-662-8794 cel, 718-251-7425.
I've been using him for years now, and he's never done me wrong. He's unlike anyone you know, real Brooklyn guy, plus funny, honest, a bit tough on his sidekicks, and always willing to tell you the real poop. (sic). As with most plumbers, he does boilers too, so call him if you're worried about turning on your heat for the winter.
Recently I lost his number. And he's a lone wolf, no website or nothin', so I was thrilled when a neighbor had some "Mark the Plumber" contact info, and I assumed it was the same guy. But Mark #2 had more of a laid back demeanor, which doesn't mean he can't plumb of course, but...we were in for an unpleasant surprise. This fella's full given name is Mark Sherman, and the guy was a real bummer, nearly scared Mrs. FlatBed to death by freaking her out about how much work would be involved getting our pipes in order. Enter Mark the REAL Plumber, who set us up for a couple hundred bucks. This other dude was asking us to rip up the cement in our basement to find a leak. Turns out we just needed to snake the line, and cap an old pipe that was spilling raw sewage (ewww) that couldn't make it to the street Bcuz of the clog. End of story.
Here's the man himself, shot from below to give him an added aura. Godspeed, Mark the Plumber. Mark the REAL Plumber. You may not have the "license," but you've definitely got the goods.
