Apple announces that its first Apple Store in Queens, New York opens this Saturday

apple-store-queens

Apple has announced on its website that its first retail store in Queens will open on Saturday 11th July at 1oam. We exclusively revealed that the store was on the way back in February, with the first construction shots seen later the same month and signage appearing in May.

The new store is located on the second floor of the Queens Center mall in Elmhurst and will be one of the largest of the eight Apple Stores in New York … 

Apple Retail marketing director Jason Barlia told the NY Daily News that the location made a lot of sense, and that although the store won’t share the unique architecture for which many Apple Stores are known, it will be unique in the way it reflects the ethnic diversity of the neighbourhood.

Barlia said the new Apple Retail Store will be one of the most diverse with over 130 staff members who will be speaking 24 languages apart from English. Two-thirds of staffers will also be fully bilingual.

Most of Apple’s existing NY stores are in Manhattan, the exception being one on Staten Island. A Brooklyn store was initially expected to open in April, but unspecified delays mean that it is now not expected to open until late this year or even into 2016.

Apple retail head Angela Ahrendts opened the stunning Upper East Side store last month.

The EPA Just Made NYC's Most Radioactive Place Into a Superfund Site

Yesterday, we enjoyed The New Yorker's engrossing interactive look at the strange history of NYC's most radioactive place, an auto shop in Queens that occupies a former factory that produced radioactive thorium for the Atomic Energy Commission. Today, after months of study, the Environmental Protection Agency decided to declare the area a Superfund site.

This Drive-In Theater Uses Junk Cars As Audience Seating

This Drive-In Theater Uses Junk Cars As Audience Seating

You might miss Empire Drive-In if you don't know it's there. This theater looks like the average junkyard, full of old cards and salvaged wood. Yet on nights and weekends, it transforms into a one-of-a-kind movie theater with a twist: The junked cars are the seats.

Apple reportedly looking to open iconic retail store in Queens, NY

Apple currently has only one other Apple Store in New York City outside of Manhattan that is located in Staten Island. Things could change, however, according to a new report from NY Daily News that clamed retail developer Yeheskel Elia is working with Apple to bring an “iconic store” to Queens, New York. The specific location of the store would be Austin Street in Forest Hills.

Nothing is official because Elia and Apple are still working on more details. Elia said he would do anything to bring an Apple Store to the bustling area. If a deal is reached, Elia said a store could open in under a year. Several months ago, an Apple broker also reached out to Elia regarding the new store.

The deal would be a “kick in the pants” to the neighboring rival Brooklyn who, with borough president Marty Markowitz and local hipster legions, has campaigned nonstop for an Apple Store for years.

When NY Daily News reached out for comment from Apple, in a typical fashion they responded, Apple has “made no announcements” regarding a NYC store outside of Manhattan (sorry Staten Island).

Apple recently opened a huge 23,000-foot. Apple Store in the NYC Grand Central Terminal. The grand opening drew in a huge crowd, who were eager to see the landmark.

Apple currently has six retail store locations in New York.

New York is also honoring Apple’s deceased cofounder Steve Jobs by inducting him into the Creative Hall of Fame today.
