Third Apple Store Coming To NYC

As we already know, Apple apparently feels the need to make its presence known throughout all of NYC. In fact, Apple isn’t content with two great stores located in SoHo and 5th Avenue, so they’re building a third in the meatpacking district. That’s right. After stuffing your face at Morimoto, you can now stroll over to 401 W. 14th St. for an iPod Shuffle or a Mac Pro.

The craziest part of all this is that the new store will Apple’s biggest NYC store to date. 32,000 square feet will hold an enormous amount of iPods and computers compared to the SoHo store (21,577 sq. feet) and the 5th Ave. store (25,000 sq. feet). No word on when the store will open officially, but I’d say by Fall of 2007.
