I'm not judging these people (I'm totally judging these people), but HOLY CRAP ARE YOU FREAKING SERIOUS. Grand Central Terminal, as pretty and regal as it may look, is not where you want to be on Friday. Stay away! And yet this.
Look at this sneak peek of Apple's newest monumental store, located in the hall of New York City's Grand Central Terminal. From this angle, it doesn't look very special. It's like someone just set up some tables around.
Newspapers! They've finally found their purpose in our digital age! And it's to be...building bricks for retail kiosks. 1,800 issues of the New York Times will clad this kiosk located in Grand Central Terminal in New York City.
NYC's Metropolitan Transit Authority has released a couple renderings of what the new Grand Central Apple Store will look like. Of course, it will look stunning. But anything in the Grand Central atrium looks stunning. Even Phil Schiller's underpants.
