Need to fill my CO2 tank somewhere in Brooklyn please HELP!

Ok so I found this place
Bell Fire Extinguisher Co Incorporated

301 3RD Ave
Brooklyn, NY 11215

They're right off the hamilton ave. exit on BQE. I am passing this place when I drive back home from work. I called them to get a quote but the lady said that she need to see the cylinder first (even that I told her that it's a new 20# tank with fresh hydrotest). So I took my new tank for my first fill ever this morning, took an hour off just to get it filled (they close at 5) and drove to that place. Long story short- $75, that's what she said!!!!.
Ridiculous. Anyway, Please, tell me where to fill it in Brooklyn- I know they all work mon-friday and that I can't fill it after 4 so I thought maybe you know someplace that I can go early in the morning (8 AM or something) to get it filled. Thank you.

There is a city ordinance about filling tanks in Brooklyn, that is why all these places swap instead of fill. There is only one place I know that will do it, I think I told you about it already. Also the atlantic welding supply place says they can fill it for you but you have to leave it there for a few days. The presto sales place near Laguardia airport can also fill co2 tanks but its kind of far for my taste.
