Another Disappearing Act: Henry St. TV Repair Shop Cleared Out
Every time we turn around, something is disappearing in Brooklyn. It's not that we would expect TV repair shops to exist forever, having become another dying art form. We expect to see them shuttered and being cleared out. (Who's old enough to remember when one called a TV Repair person and they came to one's house to fix a television set because a tube had burned out? Okay, who recalls taking a TV to the shop to get it fixed rather than throwing it away? We give up, who remembers non-flat screen TVs?) We say all this to note that G & D Television on Henry Street at the corner of Atlantic Avenue is going to the big TV repair shop in the sky. A special and valued GL Correspondent filed a photo of the old G & D sign late yesterday and this morning, the superbly informative Carroll Gardens blog Pardon Me for Asking reports that there have been dumpsters outside full of old TV sets. So, what boutique or eatery is slated to take over the space?
