The toughest part was lugging the kitchen cart from the Upper East Side, where I purchased it, back to Alphabet City. After 30 minutes of getting weird looks, I did eventually find a cabby willing to put up with my cart. Thankfully, IKEA has pdf instructions available online because I had to dissemble and reassemble this cart four times to get it from New York to Massachusetts to it's new home in Philly.
