Moving into the nyc due to new job, we are settling into a small two bedroom apartment. With limited space, I begin shopping for a bunk bed for our twin boys (6-year-old), and hope to get some help from you.
By far, I've been to pottery barn kids store and ikea. I also found raymore & flanigan and ashley furniture store websites which I plan to this week to see the bed in person. Pottery barn is nice, but is a bit expensive (1300 to 1500 without mattresses). Then, Ikea has cheap bunk bed, but I don't feel comfortable having my boys sleeping on it. We are trying not to spend too much, as it is very likely that we would move again out of the city in a year or two.
I would greatly appreciate any advice/suggestion/guidance on where to look at, what to avoid... in order to get a bunk bed at a reasonable price in new york city. Thank you for your help in advance.
You could take a trip out to Jamaica, Queens -- They have a ton of independent furniture stores at probably half the price of Ikea. Might not look as fashionable, but it's for 6 year old twins...

There's a Costco in NY and, usually, they have great pricing w/delivery. They might not carry all furniture in store but you can always look online: Costco Bunk Beds

Try Walmart which has free shipping to a WalMart store or Amazon which has no sales tax and, often, free shipping.

Five point restraints, and don't forget the gags.

The BJs / Target shopping store at the Skyview Mall, 7 train main street Flushing. Check BJs too, they have beds pay up if you do not have membership. Costco is near Queen Blvd, Rego Park, NY Shopping Center. They might have beds too.

Don't have Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly build them for you (Step Brothers ref).
If you want to make the IKEA bunk beds last longer, you should also consider buying something like gorilla glue and glue the connections in addition to the camshaft connections they use. It means you won't be able to take it apart, but it will last a lot longer, as those camshaft connections tend to break down over time.
