Apple nixes store located by Empire State Building

Wed, Nov 5, 2008


Apple has reportedly canceled plans to construct a three story Apple store in an area near the Empire State Building.  Though the area in question has some well-known boutique shops, the area is still home to a number of third-rate tourist traps.  The Post reports that Steve Jobs nixed the store location after looking at an abandoned building across the street and remarking, “This is not for Apple”.

The New York Post has the full scoop here.
