It depends upon your theshold of 'inexpensive'. Latent Image is in Manhattan (135 W. 26th, between 6th and 7th Ave). Darkrooms run $10/hr (again, depends upon your threshold of 'inexpensive'). They have B&W and color darkrooms/equipment. Dryers, trimmers and I think I saw mounting presses. Check with them but I don't think the drying/trimming/mounting counts as part of your rental time. I believe the rental time is for use of the darkroom itself (which is cool if they don't care if it takes you an hour longer to final wash/dry). They have around 15 darkrooms. Just bring your paper and negs. They supply fluids. Enlargers there are Saunders/LPL 4500 II's (color head). They also have glass (for contact prints) and 4 blade easels. I was there last weekend doing my first set of prints.
