    Are there any film processing places (specifically for large format) in Tribeca or the financial district. I know the ones in the 20s, but they're too hard to get to by bike.

    Try "Black and White on White" on Lafayette at Grand St. I've used them before, and was very pleased with their work:

    CRC/ColorEdge on 22nd street is the best for most anything...besides its only 2 stops on the 4/6 to 23rd st, or take the A/C/E

    I know you said they're too hard to get to, but it's not that much of a hike, and their reputation precedes them.

    Thank you. How is Manhattan Color Labs for E6 processing (large format)?

    I too shoot mostly colour slide film and I personally like Duggal - http://www.duggal.com/ and have brought my 4x5 transparency film to them.

    Now they're not the chatty types so if you're looking for that kind of service, you're not going to get it there. I know some APUGers look for this sort of thing. I don't and can't stand yappy behind the counter people.

    Hmmm ... but they're not in Tribeca. Shoot nevermind. I guess this was a chatty post!
