A new Apple product repair shop has quietly settled into the back of the Shakespeare and Co. Bookstore on 716 Broadway.
“Once you’ve made it to New York, it’s like you’ve really made it,” he said. Newman added that he was lucky to be friends with the Shakespeare and Co. owners, who let him have the vacant space at the back of their store to open iHospital.
Newman said he hopes that the iHospital will become a go-to destination for students in the NYU community. With the iHospital just a block away from the NYU computer store, Newman said that the two stores compliment each other well.
“The NYU Computer Stores’ services can be extremely limited in terms of software repairs,” he said.
NYU Computer Store associate director Kathy Bear said that there is room for two repair services in the area.
“With Apple’s increasing sales, I think the new repair store will find a good customer base in the area and I hope they do a good job of providing additional assistance when needed,” she said.
iHospital plans to open a second New York location on 68th Street and Lexington Avenue, near Hunter College, later in the year.
