The new Apple stored opened in November on the UWS a block north of the Lincoln Center - have you guys had a chance to check it out?

It actually looked like the central study hall in the library of a very wealthy college, with 16 long tables, mostly covered with laptops.
Down the all-glass spiral staircase is the “largest room ever for service.” That is a basement filled with a 45-foot-long genius bar and another 16 tables, some of them only knee high.
Belzer (famous for playing "Munch") was alleged to have put his hands on the shoulders of an Apple Store employee!
This store is more famous than the one on 5th already!
"The sad part of it was that police officers were called and had to report to the scene, and God knows we don't need all that manpower wasted on a trivial accusation that was clearly done either for attention or to embarrass a famous person," Belzer told The Post.
Cops were called to the West 67th Street Apple Store in response to a 911 report of an assault in progress Wednesday evening after the comedian and two aides stepped in to buy a computer.
An employee, Milan Agnew, 21, told police that Belzer grabbed her shoulders, shook her and choked her before barking, "I need help."
But Belzer said Agnew is the one who needs help -- for being so delusional.
"I've never had even the slightest rudeness like this at the Apple store," Belzer said. "They're all great. I think you have to pass a personality test to work there, and I don't know how this woman slipped through the cracks."
Belzer, 65, who lives on Riverside Drive, was questioned by police, but not charged with a crime. Cops also looked at surveillance video, and determined that he did nothing wrong.
The actor said that after waiting an unusually long time for service, he put his hands on Agnew's shoulder, but did nothing after that but ask for help.
"She wanted attention and she knew who I was and I clearly didn't assault her," Belzer said. "It's surprising that Apple would not apologize to such a high-profile, good customer. I've spent thousands of dollars there. I don't want her to be fired, I just want her to seek help."
I was there just the other day and it's a fantastic store. Probably the best feel of any Apple store I've been to and very big inside!
They all did a great job on this one. The all glass Apple store theme doesn't attempt to meet with the UWS Central Park sensibility but the curved roof, impractical-for-visitors but compact spiral staircase, and sharp corner which shouts "BROADWAY" are at least an attempt. That it was built on a former Victoria Secret store speaks to the hordes of youth who find comfort not in the arms of a voluptuous woman...but rather on a virtual keyboard.
This is a must visit Apple Store. It is the closest Apple Store in New York to what an Apple Cathedral should be. Nice thread guys.
