    I hope the line won't be too crazy. I'll be working till 7 that day. I work at 47th. Hopefully there will be some left when I head there after work. Otherwise ask for a break, call to see how the line is and sprint over haha.

    I work on 47th as well, but I am ordering one for the GF online. I would never get on a line for a product unless it was being given for free :p

    Hitting up the UWS location around 4, I'll post an update when I arrive. There weren't a ton of people there for the iPad 1 launch, but the rules are different this time so who knows.

    Anyone else going?

    SoHo

    Going to the SoHo store. I happen to be off work tomorrow. Should I go really early in the morning and "camp out" all day tomorrow?? This is my first time standing in line at the Apple Store so I don't know what the timing for the lines would be.

    I'm at the Soho store, and not counting the guy who is floating around asking if they'll buy one for him, I'm 11th in line.

    Can anyone report on the West 14th store?

    I didn't plan to line up until 2PM. But now that I've heard there're around 50 people at the Cube already, I'm not so optimistic about my 2PM anymore. :eek:

    I've called all three apple stores in the LI area (Manhasset, Roosevelt Field Mall, Walt Whitman Mall) and as of 10:30 they all had decent sized lines.

    Best buy on 86 th street told me they had 10 of every model. Not going to bother there.

    Apple store 5 th ave has aprox. 500 people waiting.
    I'm surprised there are not more updates from NYC folks.

    Gonna walk over and check out the SoHo store when I go for lunch, will report back then. This is a nightmare, the excitement of it sort of faded for me (entirely) after the iPhone launch in 07.
