Heaven In Meatpacking District
Last week, Apple opened its newest store a few blocks from me. The new store is America’s second largest and is the first three-level Apple store, with its trademark spiral glass stairway winding all the way up to a third floor devoted entirely to service.
The store's first floor has computers, the second has iPods, iPhones, and related third-party accessories. The “Genius Bar” on the third floor is almost fifty feet long, tended by many of the store’s 175 employees. The store is open every night until midnight.
As I said, Heaven has come to the Meatpacking District...and just in time for the shopping season!
