New Apple Store in NYC Upper West Side

Nov 15, 2009

I went to the new Apple store opening. Made it there around 10:15am, saw a few hundred people in line.

Not a big fan of standing in line, so I went across the street to kill a few hours by seeing a movie instead. (“2012.” Don’t go. Terrible.) Came back, the line was gone, got in. Crowded, but shoppable.

I really like the first floor. It’s unusually high for a retail place. Feels more like an art gallery or something. You don’t see the ceiling on these pics.

From the outside, it’s less impressive than 5th Ave, no cube or such. But the inside is really quite something.

Lower floor is blah, simple Apple shopping, same as other stores.
