VinceTech Computer Service on Delancey Shutters

Posted on: August 5th, 2011 at 6:09 am by

Back in those early days of 2010, NexCom Computer Cafe relocated northward from its Grand Street base operations.  With the move to 64 Delancey Street came more cramped quarters and an identity change – VinceTech Computer Service. Eighteen months later, and the business has vanished.  A silent closure, with one sign breaking the news.  The entire interior is now bare, devoid of any equipment or wiring.

VinceTech was everything you would expect from a corner internet cafe, a spartan experience with only the barest of essentials.  The most apparent difference, however, was steeper pricing which exceeded some of the local competition.  Especially with regard to printing – a whopping 25 cents a page.  Other services included computer repair and a tiny retail shelf of ink cartridges, jump drives, and the like.

When ‘Forward’ Lit the Way on East Broadway
