- Before and after renderings of Apple's Fifth Avenue cube redesign.

- Apple Store definitely coming to Grand Central Station at some point in the near future.
According to The Real Deal, Apple will be shelling out $800,000 per year in rent, which seems a little high given that the previous tenant was paying about half that.

The crowding of my overall commute to NYC will most likely be more annoying but I'll learn to live with it.
