A former IT manager for JPMorgan Chase, Arthur Zilberman opened LaptopMD with the goal of offering customer-oriented computer service from a convenient midtown location. Joined by a team of expert techs, he repairs and tunes up computers and laptops to meet the rapid pace of the city’s hard-working professionals. Free estimates precede all services and repairs, with the flexible staffers accepting computers through the mail, picking up and delivering them from clients, or doing repairs on site. Their combination of excellent customer service and competent work has created a tidal wave of enthusiastic local press and happy laptops that open and close themselves in applause.
To minimize the amount of time customers and their electronic devices must be apart, the staff at iFix New York and Quick Fix Technologies work fast, diagnosing digital hiccups for free while patrons wait. Once repairs are approved the technicians begin tinkering with devices, generally finishing their work within 24 hours when they have the needed parts on hand. Clients can monitor the progress of repairs on their computer, smartphone, or audio equipment with an online tracking system. Technicians can also perform services onsite, setting up homes, small businesses, or state-of-the-art treehouses with wireless or printer networks.
Six long shelves holding vintage radios and projectors fill the length of an exposed-brick wall. Old Mac computers face out from knee-high cabinets and a few hang from the ceiling and display “now serving” numbers reminiscent of a delicatessen. From the looks of it, you might think you’re in a tech time warp—but it’s quite the opposite. The antique electronics simply and aesthetically remind customers of the technological past when they’re inside Tekserve Corporation, an authorized reseller and service provider for Apple products. For more than 20 years, its staff of computer gurus has been fixing Apple products during repair and consulting services and shedding light on the products’ capabilities during classes and seminars. These informative sessions touch on an evolving list of topics that often includes improving one’s social-media experience and building one’s own Internet. The shop also has an array of gadgets and accessories available for purchase or rental.
The Hill embodies the conflicted spirit of Murray Hill, a neighborhood that is by turns quiet and boisterous. 20-somethings descend on the bar to cheer on their recent alma maters throughout early evening. After the final buzzer, candlelight replaces the glow of televisions and the bar transforms into a stylish lounge.
Since 1976, Manhattan Mini Storage has freed up the closet space of more than 200,000 New Yorkers with units spread throughout the borough.

Manhattan Mini Storage has the space and time to accommodate overstocked packrats and urban rolling stones alike.
