    For those of you looking for an iPhone in NYC. I walked by on my way to work this morning and the store downstairs in Grand Central station had a total of 5 people on line as of 7:45am this morning. right upstairs the AT&T and Verizon stores had 50+ people on line each.

    You definitely have to be in the wrong line.

    I was going to pickup my preordered iPhone 6 at 8:00 but I have a firm commitment at 9:00 so I'll have to go after 2:00. It should still be there, right?

    The line by the stairs leading up to the Apple Store appears small on launch days.

    But there's a whole other waiting area in one of the tunnels. They do that to keep the Apple customers from impeding the flow of commuter traffic. It is, after all, Grand Central Terminal!

    Yeah. Can confirm. Bought my 5S at Grand Central. They put you in the tunnel and move you in groups to the closer line.

    Ok got it, I didn't look in the tunnel. I guess thats necessary with the amount of foot traffic in that area.

    Yeah, I thought I was a genius last year and then got shoved into a tunnel like 150th in line.
