Manhattan-based freelancer Robert Caplin photographed a press preview of the new Apple Store in New York’s Grand Central Terminal.
Yesterday I had an assignment to photograph a press preview of the brand-spanking new Apple Store which is opening tomorrow in New Yorkâ€™s Grand Central Terminal. I was amazed when I found that the store wasnâ€™t tucked away in a traditional retail location inside the terminal, rather the store is perched overlooking the main hub and busy concourse . Â As in most Apple stores, there are sections devoted to handheld devices like the iPhone, iPod and iPad, as well as accessories, desktop computers and the companyâ€™s signature Genius Bar. But there will also be express pickup stations where people can pick up Apple products that theyâ€™ve purchased in advance.Â Apparently itâ€™s the biggest store in their international chain and will employ 315 workers. Iâ€™ll let the photos do the talking. Too bad Steve Jobs wasnâ€™t there to see it!
