    It looks as though Apple has finally found a location on Fifth Avenue to build a store!

    http://appleinsider.com/article.php?id=853

    I love Apple retail stores, so hopefully this one is going to be great. Perhaps it will be even better than the $40m prada store!

    Plus, a store on fifth can only give apple more and more exposure.

    Cool :cool:

    Awesome.

    I'm all for Apple stores. I think their concept makes them the best retail store of all. They don't force anything on you, they just show you how good Macs are compared to Windows machines.

    Also, way to go Apple for picking another high traffic area. :)

    I can't imagine how much nicer Apple can make their flagships. Think about it, FULL GLASS! I remember my jaw dropping the first time I ever went in a flagship, it was the Chicago one. Simply amazing.

    That corner (5th Ave & Central Park South/59th Street) is about as crowded a spot as you could find in NY. It has all the foot traffic of Times Square without the insane feel. No surprise of course, but I don' t think they could have picked a better spot to be on 5th Ave.

    I know that it may seem crazy to build more than one "flagship" store in a town, but these two locations are bound to attract very different crowds.

    There's been talk of an Upper Westside location. Given the concentration of well off potential Mac users on the UWS, I hope they keep this on the list as well.

    Thats awesome... I don't know Manhattan too well, but thats great news about all the foot traffic. Apple is such an amazing company. If you haven't bought some of Apple's stock lately, now is a better time than ever. Most of the targets for AAPL are between 75 and 85 and the highest is 100. Good thing I bought mine at 55.37. :)

    Does anyone know the size of the Chicago Michigan Ave. store, because that store is huge and this one will be mush bigger. :D

    The North Michigan Avenue store is 24,000 square feet. By comparison, the SoHo store is 21,000 sf.

    It doesn't sound like the new site will be any larger than either of these, but I think 21,000 sqaure feet will do quite nicely.

    Very cool indeed. This is not far at all from the hotel we usually stay at when visiting New York. I wonder how soon it's expected to open?

    I think apple needs to replace the Cup Noodles way up high at times square with a big iPod. :D

    Excellent news. The Soho store is awesome but I hate going all the way downtown. Very classy location they found. Surrounded by very expensive retail stores like Saks, Bergdorf's and others.
