MadisonAvenue Camera, New york Are they legit?

Can anyone living in New york let me know whether MadisonAvenue Cameras are legit?  I ordered a camera and got an acknowledgement but no reply to my email and no-one picking up phone.  If anyone has purchased from this website would appreciate your experience.

Adorama and B&H are the only two that I will deal with, and in that order.
Be especially wary if their address is in Brooklyn. I've heard too many horror stories about the semi legit camera shops in Brooklyn, and once had an issue myself with one of them with "Maine" a part of their business name. They aren't in Maine. They are in Brooklyn. There may be a good one in Brooklyn, but in 65 years I haven't heard of them. If price is your issue, Adorama runs sales frequently and sells through Amazon. If you are an Amazon Prime customer, you can buy it through them and you've got 30 days to return it free, if you aren't happy.

Just expressing my opinion and personal experience here. Not looking to argue the point.

I was warned about certain camera shops in NYC and surrounding.  It was suggested I only buy from the following:  B&H, Roberts, Adorama, and Mikes

Thanks Norsephotographer - yes usually do purchase from Adorama o B & H but I wanted a camera that has been  discontinued so "used"  and they did not have one.  I sorted it out, they did not have the camera and did not charged me.  I did find another place in the SF Bay area.  Perfect experience, emailed me back straight away with my queries and product arrived in two days in beautiful condition.  The company is caled Phototronics.  So this is added to my preferred sellers.  Thanks for your reply - was sweating there a little.
