The Geek is Gone
The Brooklyn Geek, a small, independent computer repair & diagnosis business, has closed shop at Fourth Avenue & 8th Street. The business was originally based on 1st Street (I remember us lugging our larger, heavier PCs there in earlier years) and moved to Fourth in 2008. Over the years it garnered a reputation for accurate, fairly-priced and friendly service. And you always felt you were leaving your vulnerable information in honest hands. In addition to repairs & other computer services such as data retrieval, upgrades, virus removal etc, the Geek ran computer classes, and more recently had a sideline in Italian ices.
Happily, the owners, Patty & Gabe Feliciano, still have an online business, serving customers in Brooklyn & Staten Island. They'll provide tutoring (seniors a specialty), make house calls by appointment, & offer free pick-up and delivery. Contact details are available at their website.
