Apple core

I rarely seem to buy things from the Apple store. Once you have the iPhone, the MacBook, the iPad and whatever accessories are ‘essential’ there is simply no need to go in there and browse for the slightly newer, slightly shinier, slightly thinner models.

Yet I somehow find myself in Apple stores if I see them on my travels. My time there is spent dodging ‘geniuses’ as much as it is not looking at things, but the stores are often of a nice design and pretty cool to look at.

Plus they have free Wi-Fi.

By now you will have guessed, if you didn’t know already, that this image was taken in an Apple store. It’s the one on 5th Avenue just before you get to Central Park. Entry to the store is via spiral staircase which leads you to the middle, or if you prefer – as was the case here – a lift which the staircase spirals around. It really is the core of the store.

The fat black line that you see in the middle is the underside of a giant Apple logo; a big apple in the Big Apple.
