Visited the Cube glass apple store, very very cool:
I don't see the point.
It's a store. They sell the same things that every other Apple store does.
i would like to visit that store one day
Yeah, I HAD to make room for it on my trip to NY. though I really wanted to see the one on 14th street, i just ran into this one...and satisfied lol
I've been there - and regret wasting an hour of my life going to do so - I could have been somewhere interesting.
That is probably the least aesthetically pleasing building in the world....
Geez... come on, people. What's with all the negativity? The store looks pretty cool in my opinion, and even if the sell the same products at all Apple stores, it's not too often one is able to visit such a large location that has been designed to attract visitors from across the globe.
Personally, I can't wait to check the place out next time I go to NY. Even if I'm there just to look at a giant glass cube, it's part of the exclusive retail experience that Apple brings that makes it totally worth it.
We didn't have time when my family and I went to NYC last summer. The bus driver said that they charged you $100 each person as entrance fee (ROFL). So everyone on the tour bus was like heck no, why do I want to go see some fugly glass cube?
Now come on… that is a bit harsh.
It really is just a harmless I.M. Pei rip-off by way of the Ka'bah… and therefore a perfect focus for pilgrimage by Mac zealots.
There are far worse examples of bad building design.
Unless of course you're Prince Charles and Poundbury is your benchmark of good contemporary design…
I went there on my last trip to NY and it was great, a lot of fun.
You can't call this bad building design because this isn't a building. It's just a doorway, for lack of a better description. The store itself is all underground, the cube is just the way you get in. I think it's brilliant.
errrm. I didn't call it bad anything.
In fact I quite like it. Harmless enough…
I was responding to hacksaw-C87 who called it the least aesthetically pleasing building in the world.... .
I brought my iPod there last summer. First Apple product, and started my like for all things apple (I since then got an iMac and now I am looking at an iPhone)
Its a cool store. A little busy. The other New York store isnt as unique.
Which of the other New York stores are you referring to...?
I'd definitely like to visit. I'm indifferent to Apple these days but it still looks mighty fine.
Well the people who DID go can say how neat it is.
maybe those of you who think its just a boring other apple store already have cool apple stores in their area.
don't listen to the grumpy old men. they probably find macy's more exciting... the 59th street store is nice, i bought my mac there 12am.
Sometime in the future the prophecy of the Third Cube will be fulfilled...
Been to NY many times and have seen it. It's a cool store and the glass stairway/elevator are interesting to see, but other than that the rest of the actual store is pretty standard, if a little busier than most stores. It's funny to see how many people go in the elevator just to use it since the majority of them could probably just take the stairs.
