So it seems like most of the labs in NYC dont offer B&W processing any longer.

I've got about 4000 feet of film to get developed and transferred. I am gonna go with Post Works for my telecine since they have hands down the best prices and the nicest staff in the area.

But for my developing its either Du Art or Color Lab to get this done. I know Color Lab will likely be cheaper, and that Du Art treats everyone like crap unless you are a feature film. Do you think it will be worth the extra cash and hassle to go with Du Art? I've had a great deal of footage processed and transferred at color lab and I never had any problems with them...but Du Art is supposed to be the "best"....

So what do you think Du Art or Color Lab???

I can't offer an opinion as to which lab is the best, but it seems you've answered your own question. If you liked the services and the quality of Color Lab and they are less expensive than Du Art... seems you will have success there again. Maybe send a test roll to DuArt to see if you perceive a valuable increase in quality to justify switching labs.
