I work in Manhattan, just a few blocks from Apple’s flagship retail store. I live in Brooklyn, not far from Williamsburg which gets an Apple Store next spring. NYPost:
The tech-products powerhouse has signed a long-term lease for a 20,000-square-foot store at 247 Bedford Ave. at the corner of North 3rd Street, brokerage community sources definitively revealed. It will be Apple’s long-awaited first Brooklyn location… The two-story brick structure, a few blocks from the Bedford Avenue L station, is getting a whole new look, featuring dramatic, arched windows, to be completed in April 2015.
