The store features a distinctive 32-foot glass cube that creates an attractive new destination on Fifth Avenue, one of the world’s most popular shopping areas.

“We opened our first New York store in SoHo in 2002, and it has been successful beyond our dreams. Now we’re thrilled to open our second New York store on Fifth Avenue,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. “With outstanding service and an amazing location open 24 hours a day, we think the Apple Store Fifth Avenue is going to be a favorite destination for New Yorkers and people around the world.”

The new store offers more than 100 Macs and nearly 200 iPods for customers to try before they buy, as well as the world’s largest assortment of accessories.

The Apple Store Fifth Avenue also has the largest staff of any Apple Store, with nearly 300 highly trained Mac Specialists, Mac Geniuses and Creatives who will offer free tips and tricks on photography, movies and music.

Inside the Apple Store Fifth Avenue, customers will find a combined 45-foot Genius Bar, iPod Bar and The Studio where they can get face-to-face support, free advice and work on creative projects at any hour of the day or night.

Here are some pictures:







Here is a link with pictures, videos, and a little write up from a guy who went to the Store opening. http://ifostore.cachefly.net/fifth_avenue/index.html

Here is the link to the Apple Retail Store and calendar of events.

I think this is the coolest Apple Retail Store ever built.

AWESOME! Can't wait to make a trip to this one soon...

It should be a law that all Apple users have to visit the Apple Store 5th Avenue at least once a week to be enlightened by Apple's genius.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't it sorta look like the Louvre's Glass Pyramid?

the back of our computer looks better than the front of theirs

Very cool store --- in the Portland Oregon area we have an Apple store inside of one of our major malls --- Recently Sony opened up a new "Sony Style" store almost directly accross from the Apple store. Everytime I've been there the Apple store is packed --- while the Sony store has at most a dozen people wandering around ........ I love it
