Our moving sale is still on going and we have everything marked down. Come help us make our move easier. If you have not stored your valuable furs yet, bring them in for their summer vacation or if you cannot make it in, call us for a pick up appointment. We will be open on Saturday May 30th from 10 - 3 besides our usual week day hours. We hope to see you before we say farewell to our old home.

Elodie L. reviewed your business on Yelp
5 Stars (5/5)
I do not understand why there is even one negative review for this business.I have worked in fashion for 20 years (15 of which I spent in NYC) and I give Madison Avenue Furs five stars because this business truly deserves it: I will never go anywhere else to get my furs tailored or repaired as long as I live in New York City. I walked into the 29th Street boutique without having made an appointment nor being referred to and was treated like family. I have never received such quality of service in New York City: I felt like my needs were being addressed with care and I very much appreciated it. Steve Cowit was the person whom took my order and although him and I had never met, it was like we had been life-long friends. I would never go to any other furrier in the city even if they were cheaper: this is how strongly I feel about the Cowits fur business. Period.

Henry Cowit Inc / Madison Ave Furs, LTD is a third generation full service furrier. started by our grandfather, Henry. He was eventually joined by his son Jerry. They built up one of the industry's largest matching houses ( supplying matching materials to furriers for repairs and remodels). Henry passed away but Jerry was soon joined by his 2 sons, Steve and Larry. They continued their matching business but also moved forward with their wholesaling of pre-owned fur garments. They eventually became the largest buyer and seller ( wholesale & retail) of pre-owned, vintage and designer furs in the USA. We are specialists in fur repair and remodeling. We do storage and fur cleaning and we have a large inventory of fur accessories. We are also one of the only furriers who rents fur for all kinds of occasions.Meet the Business Owner
